3.5/5 rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a beautiful reddish hue, but head disappears almost immediately with no lacing. Aroma is not overwhelming--some malt. Taste likewise, very malty with little hop flavor to cut through; metallic taste that lingers past the sweet malts. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, strongly carbonated, which improved after I let it sit for about an hour--much better warmer and flatter, when the beer coats the mouth and the sweetness feels rounder and more balanced.
Overall, not a bad brew, but I wouldn't rush back.
