lamas (1655) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Draft on 04/29/16. Served in a 1L dimpled mug. Arrived at the table a hazy gold color with a thick off-white head. The pleasant aroma featured some bananas, cloves, bubblegum, sweet wheaty grains, and a touch of citrus. Went down thin to medium-bodied. The taste started with a sizable grainy presence. A little caramel, bananas, bubblegum, and some citrus fruits followed. Nicely spiced throughout. A solid example of the style. Dangerously drinkable.
