4.13/5 rDev +8.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Copper with an amber tint. It's a cloudy beer as well. Tons and tons of foam and lacing, making this beer very attractive!
Smell: I expected to find this beer malty, and it is as such with a caramel maltiness. However, I did not expect the hops, which I found as well. Sweet hops pervades throughout this beer. It's a very very good smell that doesn't need much else.
Taste/Mouthfeel: I like the taste. It's bitter, but sweet. Definitely caramel and hops, something I hadn't been used to. Farily complex, since it warms nicely and almost becomes a bit fruity, but only faintly. As for how this feels...holy cow! Amazing amazing creaminess make this as smooth as a baby's bottom! I hate to be cliché but I found this extraordinarily smooth! One of the best!
Drinkability: Another good pub brew!
Overall: The initial appearance raises expectations, as does the feel. Ultimately, this beer does not live up to those expectations, preventing a high A grade.
Serving type: nitro-tap

I think I found one of my new favourite beers.
Pours a clear coppery color with about a finger of two of solid just slightly off-colour head with a decent retention.
The aroma is extra nice. Some malts, some fruity smell but mostly biscuity and nutty notes, easily picked up by the nose.
The taste is likewise, amazing. Starts sweet and is followed by nice biscuity body, slight bitterness towards the end, and finishes with a nice spicy finish.
Easily drinkable, smooth, delicious. Just great.
