3.11/5 rDev -15%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3
Appearance: a deep red, almost blood red if it wasn't so clear. Just a touch of an off white head. Pretty clear with just a touch of haze
Smell: sweetness. Fruity slightly caramel sweetness. No hop aroma but you know the hops are there balancing the sweetness.
Taste: opens up with fruit. Sweetness is always present as it moves towards caramel. A bitterness is apparent as the sweetness kicks off but it doesn't leave muc flavor
Mouthfeel: light and kind of insignificant
Overall: pretty drinkable but just missing enough to not be good. The sweetness is fought off by the hops but still win by a landslide. Almost too sweet
Serving type: on-tap

4.03/5 rDev +10.1%

Pours dark amber nearly brown in color and has a pretty big haze to it. Head is about one finger, fizzy and off white. Head has fair retention .
Nose has some rich doughy bready malt forward. There is a faint hazelnut sweetness also present hops are there but light, hard to detect particular aromas, maybe some herbal aromas.
Taste is great. Some more bready malt is forward that fades into a light herbal hop midsection before a slightly doughy malt finishs the beer leaving sone residual sweetness.
Mouthfeel is good, medium body is cut with moderate to high carbonation and leaves it pretty soft and highly drinkable. Very light bitterness lets the malt really come out.

I've head this on draft at their pub, but it was a while back and this is for the bottled version.
Appearance is fine. Slightly hazy brown. Not much head after pouring.
Nose is malt and caramel, but not much else.
Taste is ok for the style. On the sweeter side. Nothing off putting, but perhaps the short, slightly sour finish. No real depth, but nothing bad.
Mouthfeel is strangely viscous. Not exactly what I had in mind.
Overall it's fine, but nothing to write home about.
