Pours a half finger of off-white foam, mostly a weave of tiny bubbles, disappears quickly, the lacing is razor thin but does stick well enough. The liquid is crystal clear and there’s a fair amount of active bubble beads visible, light amber brown in color, consistent throughout and above average brightness. The nose is a split between carob, caramel, pie crust flakes, nuts and cherry pits and then quinine water, minerals, earth and a splash of herbal greenness, not really emphasizing overall sweetness. Medium-bodied, the carbonation is not high but very steady and stays with you from first to last sip. As a result, has a streamlined presentation which here too is on the dry side. The butterscotch, chocolate and toffee flavors front loaded and airy, again no real sweet grip. Bready and at times close to yeasty were it not also infused with that metallic bitterness. The fruit is muted and citrus more or less absent. That bite keeps you awake and receptive yet you keep wishing there was more length in the primary flavors. Stylistically correct and has good drinkability, won’t get you bloated, likely improves when consumed with food.
