3.1/5 rDev -18.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 12 oz. clear bottle into pint glass.
A: Reddish-brown in color, with a thin flimy looking head upon pour. Actively carbonated, and head stuck around throughout drinking. The appearance grew on me, and it looked a lot nicer when drink was 3/4's gone.
S: Mild skunk. Malty scent.
T: Skunk went away after first couple of tastes. Heavy on the malt flavor. Nutty and caramel flavors also come through. There was a metallic taste that I was not too fond of.
M: Decent mouthfeel, but nothing overly stands out.
D: At 5.2% abv. this is definitely an easily drinkable beer, but with what I see as inconsistancies in the taste I am going to look elsewhere next time.
Serving type: bottle
