On tap @ Hop Leaf

Cloudy light pale yellow in color. Forms a fairly sizeable white head. Aroma is off: toast, cardboard, plywood, and yeasty esters that come of reminiscent of decomposition (I said: "rotten cherries" my wife described it as "dead goose") Aroma is really odd and I'm having a hard time getting a grasp of it. Taste isn't much better: a shitload of toast with a good dose of biscuit malt in the mix. Some herbal hops on the finish, but unfortunately they don't complement the toasty flavor in the least. Light to medium body with a dry toastiness to it. Leaves a rather unpleasant coating in the mouth. Overall, this beer is a good try, but far from anything I'd want to have again.
