Inflorescent nose with some doughy citrus; malty front end with some phenol notes, fruity and hoppy finish, somewhat harsh; slightly astringent and tangy finish. Reid (2605) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Dark amber beer with a beautiful light tan head thats creamy and thick.
Not very much aroma at all going on , just a slight maltiness/ buiscuit.
Very light caraamel taste to begin then some toastiness, and a slight lactic taste,long lasting bitter aftertaste.
Ok on the palate , pretty average stuff.
I found this drinkable enough, but rather uninspired.
