Kentucky

3.79/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Looks brown and cola-like in a porcelain mug.

Toasted malt, toffee, herbal and floral hops, thistle, and a touch of pine form the aroma.

Flavor reveals deep toffee malt base, toasted and slightly burnt breadcrust, becoming a touch bitter and herbal at the finish. Floral and muted citrus hops adds complexity, but herbs and toffee dominate.

Body is moderate, with carbonation slightly low, and a touch of alcohol warmth.

Great malt character, interesting hop character.

Serving type: on-tap
