2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Cask at the brewery) cloudy, clear light amber, opaque bubbles. Nose is medicinal, rosemary, wintergreen, menthol, caramel and light hops shining through. Taste is quite medicinal also, rosemary bitterness from the oil, caramel, agave, linger is very earthy, low carbonation. The rosemary numbs and is exceptionally drying. Hard to drink.
Cask at the brewery.
Dull amber pour with very little head. Nose is almost all rosemary - herbal with very little hops. Flavor is the same - the hop bite of the original is replaced with herbs. Interesting.
