3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Darker in color than I was expecting. Very light bitterness & malt, finishes with a nice subtle nuttiness. Good brew, just not exactly to the style.
Poured up on tap at the brewpub with a crystal clear deep gold body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetness along with a light floral hop note. The taste has some sweetness, floral hops, sweet fruity esters and a bit of roasted malts. This seems on the roasty and rich side for the style with some mild hop bitterness bubbling up into the finish. Interesting take on the style.
