2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at The Farmhouse Tap & Grill, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out candied sugar on top, with the rye to follow and some mild citrus hops. Flavour of heavy rye and rock candies, with citrusy hops lingering on the mouthfeel. This one is cloyingly sweet and not in good balance. Way too much of the candy, shy on the rye and shy on the hops. Not good.
