The Bro's gave this beer a rating of 99. Thats Sculpin and Flower power numbers. Which of the three would you grab first.
No, to me, this is an average beer perhaps a little better.
It does have a nice appearance, bright amber color with some haze. A beige dense head on top with desent carbonation.
Aroma is murky and muddle hops. Malts are dry smelling.
Taste is mostly dry malts. Hops are present but really only show bitterness , which is quite pronounced.
The best before date is May so I figure it's at mid life.
An okay beer but really is just plain boring.
