2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Medium brown pour with a light brown head. Mild sweet aroma of roast and wood. Flavor is pretty bland. A little bit of malt sweetness. There is a very mild wood character, but it’s not all that pleasant. As my girlfriend put it, it tasted like "when you chew on a toothpick for a while". Couldnt have put it any better. Just very boring overall, and a bit thin and watery. Not impressive.
