Tasting notes

This one is very close to the original product! Slight undertones of wood from the oak, light to medium mouthfeel, slight oak/ malt aroma. A very nice afternoon beer, at the low ABV, a great session beer. Low to medium carbonation, it doesn't get in the way of the experience. Firestone DBA fans, give this a chance. Cheers!
