1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
A dark golden color with a cream colored, short lived head. Very malty, caramel and something unusual......it has a cookie dough or macadamia nut thing going on. Fizzy, way to much small bubble fizz. Has a sweet yet tangy flavor, I’m not really into this beer. Might be past the date, I will have to try again with a fresher one. As it stands now, not to my liking.
Can. Rich caramel malt with citrusy hops. Quite sweet and malty. They’ve teased some good malt flavor out of this, but it could use more hopping. It gets to be cloying. Not bad.
