3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at Thompsons Brewpub in S.Salem
Darker brown beer with a small tan head..that goes fast.
Woody,earthy,slight perfumed aroma.Dark fruit,fig maybe purple plum..
Taste is more fruity..plum like,still a bit of leafiness and a touch of hop. Interesting.
Palate is fine..smooth with medium body and carbonation.
This is the second sake yeast beer from McMens and I liked them both.
Interesting beer. On tap at the Hillsdale Brewers Fest. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium white head. A big spicy nose, roasted malts and anise. The flavor is dusty at times, big sweet spices, floral, a bit of roast, chocolates. Pine. Good.
