1.7
mcberko (17147) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
12 oz. can, pours a murky orange / brown with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus hops and some unpleasant cloying maple syrup - uh-oh. Flavour is quite musty, with herbal hops, some syrup notes, caramel / toffee, finishing on a hoppy sweet note. The warmer it gets, the more herbal and nastily sweet this becomes. Quite repulsive, really.
