4.13/5 rDev +7.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 12 oz narrow necked brown bottle, no freshness date.
Appearance: Beautiful and bright clarity donning a tarnish copper hue, head retention is flawless leaving more on the glass than not.
Smell: Big rounded caramel aroma with a small side of diacetyl, hint of hop leaning towards floral.
Taste: Flexed medium body showing its malt strength, carbonation holds things together. Very light smokiness within, malt sweetness is prevalent throwing around caramel and light honey flavours. Rounded hop twang throughout, balancing bitterness with some mildly herbal flavour. Finish is on the sweet side but not without traces of residual hop and a growing graininess.
Notes: Well balanced and quite drinkable, does not rock the boat yet play well with mixing malt and hop flavours. This would pair well with a smoked turkey sandwich on sour-dough bread.
Serving type: bottle
