3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours dark brown with a stiff beige head. The aroma is nutty with some notes of roast grain and lemon. The flavor is cascade nops, roasted barley, and a pleasant bitterness. There’s a little bit of a nut-shell taste in the finish. Not too shabby.
