Jesus this is NOT good. Dark caramel color. Sour smell. Weird sour hop, malt flavor. Really generic and off putting. I am having a hard time drinking this. Way below average in a crowded field. Worth a try as I have been pleasantly surprised before but this is not one of those times-A Big Fat PASS.

Purchased at Champagne's $2.99 for a 12oz bottle. Served at 6deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 2" high white head that lasts for 2mins before film out. Very dark gold colour and unfiltered

S- Nice sour character. After that the standard high sweetness heavy malt starts to shine through

T- Nice blend of bitter and sweet. Nothing outrageous but it's all there in malt, yeast and hops.

M- Nice and dry with a great tartness that almost stings at times which is why the extra quarter point isn't there

O- Nice brew. Has a pleasant sipping nature that won't overpower you with sweetness or bitterness. Good for a nice fall cool night

Food Pairing

This rather good brew went very well with...... Hot sausage, egg, onion, rice and butter stir fry. Pretty easy to use up some leftovers quick

Enjoy
