2.53/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Red-brown color. Brownish head, quite compact, average persistence. Opalescent appearance.
He smell is weet and caramel. Caramel sugar. Maybe a little tedious, but quite personal. Some ripe fruit (peach, dried plum, maybe strawberry?).
Caramel in the taste too, with a sharp note of butter. Some alcohol, too. In any case, too sweet.
Medium-light body.
Obviously, it is sweet in the aftertaste too, with caramel etc. But in the background there is also some bitter, even some liquorice.

Edit: second taste, some months later. Better. More balanced, and less sweet.

Serving type: on-tap
