3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle won at Craft Beer Live 2016. It’s an opaque honey gold so I guess that means it’s European in style. The aroma is biscuit, bready and, mild butterscotch. Light bodied with a prickly carbonation and very dry finish the taste is bready, honey, a bit of butterscotch with a bitting herbal hop note in the finish. It’s ok.
