3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap from a cask at the brewery’s taproom on Firkin Friday 11/19/10. Clear amber, with very minimal white head (can’t be too hard on that though, it was pulled from a cask). A delicious bouquet of aromas hit the nose: vanilla, banana, pumpkin spice...actually smells a bit like eggnog. Taste is somewhat bland. Shame. Vanilla is nowhere on the taste, but mostly pumpkin and banana. Sweet malty, no bitterness. Bland yet unbalanced.
