Beer Review, Black Wattle Superior Wattle Seed Ale

Barons Brewing Company Black Wattle Superior Wattle Seed Ale

Appearance: Dark brown body, clear, small bubbly head that dissipates almost immediately. 2.0/5

Smell: Clean, malty aroma, slightly sweet. Nutty, almost like a nice brown ale. Hints of chocolate and... cloves? Highly inviting aroma. 4.0/5

Taste: The subtleties apparent in the nose are lost on the tongue. Slightly sweet opener, somewhat malty, but overall a bit of a mush. Finishes a bit tarty, but without the sweetness that that would imply. It's clean but disappointing. 2.0/5

Mouthfeel: Very thin, with hints of chewiness occasionally with what I assume are wattle seeds. 2.0/5

Drinkability: Overall, this is a forgettable beer. The best part of this is the nose.2.0/5

Overall: 2.4/5

I really enjoyed this one- a hot summer day with an ICE cold bottle poured into a frozen pint glass was outstandingly refreshing- all the flavor with zero bitterness or bite, this one may be my favorite.
