4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tadg’s Irish in Kyoto. Aroma: Citrus and light pine notes from the hops dominate. Flavor: Citrus, some pine, ripe orange/citrus with some tropical fruit as well. Spice. Comment: the most aromatic of the Outsider beers available that night.
Another interesting beer from Outsider, the name says it all. The aroma truly brings to mind a forest. I picked up on a mossy flavor, lightly hopped and well balanced. As I am not a huge fan of highly hopped beers this was a pale ale I could get behind. Nicely done. KyotoLefty (10688) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 21, 2013
