2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
World Cup seasonal. Hazy tan with lots of bubbles and a thick head. The aroma is a bit buttery and a little bready. Sweetish and slightly spicy taste. Relatively soft body and the butter shows - unfortunately - mainly in the aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft @ brewpub. Hazy burnt orange hue with lively carbonation, and a very thick stable head. The aroma is sour and buttery, quite off-putting at first. The flavors, however, are fine. It’s a thin beer but the butter does make the palate oily. Sweetish malts mix with minerals. In spite of the aroma it remains drinkable with a crisp grassy hop finish.
