Twentieth Anniversary Ale

Batch 7040.

Nice looking pale orange pour with some chill haze. Small, but perfectly formed head, not much lacing, what there is, is fairly watery.

Malt acidic sweetness in the nose. Not a strong smell at all.

Tastes are sweet malts. It’s much sweeter than I was anticipating, and it drinks fairly sweet too. Small bitter finish with a tinge of hops, but not much to speak of. Smooth, nice mouthfeel.

Yes, this is an above average brew, and it IS a drinkable beer, but at the same time it seems very, very ordinary for a brewery that is so well thought of for its 20th anniversary beer. In that respect it is disappointing.
