look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pint glass pour is pale amber/brown, orange highlights, hazy. Off-white head retains very well. Scent is dessert-y, definitely on the sweet side, improves nicely with warmth. Caramel and brown sugar mostly, with some light cocoa, vanilla, nutty malts and bread.

Taste is less sweet but plainer, offering mostly caramel, nutty malts, bread, light roast and some leafy hops there as well. Slight off/medicinal tastes. The mouthfeel is a pretty thin and highly carbonated for the style but not really a bother.

Not bad but lacking some flavor and body, the scent was good.
