On tap at Khoury's in Somerville, down the street from dinner @ Vinny's at night.
This one fills up a pint glass pretty nicely. Good amber body with a decent single-finger ginger-colored head that sticks around a bit. So far, so good.
The scent isn't bad at all, but it doesn't have a huge amount of strength, either. What you would expect - mild amber malt...maybe a little hop grass in there too. Nothing overpowering but not bad.
Well, $#!+ - this tastes OK. It's straightforward, yes, but what can I say...there's a decent malt profile(amber...maybe a hint of Munich-ish taste in there), maybe a little bit of hop grass, and it finishes clean. No macro-swill-adjunct aftertaste. Mild, of course, but it's pleasant.
The palate feel on this one is decent. It has a little bit of creamy thickness to it but it's not heavy. Pretty much comes and goes with an even keel and a solid finish.
There's a time and a place for everything. This is no exception. Maybe I won't seek this out in bottles but if there's a place with a limited selection and this is on tap, I won't be ashamed at all to order up one of these. The kicker - this was a whopping $2 a pint. I know there are a lot of InBud hat-ahs out there, but this product is actually solid.
Serving type: on-tap
