3.05/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Bought this on a recent trip to Omaha, heard so many good things about it that I thought I would give it a shot, 12 oz bottle, best before 15DEC06 and marked 20188 066128 1102, poured into a pint glass

A—pours clear light copper with a 1 ½ inch sand colored cloud like head that collapses down after several minutes, laces like Swiss cheese

S—sweet and sour, more sour than anything, some bread tones, not to my liking, actually, a little dirt aroma as well

T—sweet, buttery, biscuit, some fruitiness, very strong flavor, finishes on the dry side

M—smooth, medium/light bodied, good carbonation

D—glad I tried it, but not something I would have on a regular basis. I really don’t like the smell.
