12oz bottle received by a kind BA that I can't put a finger on (my record keeping has been tough lately). Thanks! Poured into a Bruery tulip.
A - Pours a crystal clear pale orangey amber color with a finger of fizzy off wite foam that dies down pretty quickly. Only a thin collar is left behind with a tiny bit of lace.
S - Slightly metallic, perfumey floral hops, light bready and caramelly malt. Despite the use of an Abbey yeast, I'm not really picking up anything in the aroma that would indicate its use.
T - Malty, bready, sweet at the base with just a subtle Abbey yeast influence giving a light spiciness. The perfumey hops still come thru pretty clearly too. Interesting but not amazing...a little bit of a letdown.
M - Pretty light bodied with medium carbonation...just a bit prickly on the tongue. A bit too thin and watery for the style and to my tastes.
D - I really wanted to love this beer - has to be one of the all time great beer names. The product itself, however, didn't quite live up to the name. Not a bad beer, just a bit on the average side. Very smooth and definitely goes down quickly, but without the satisfaction level I'd like to see. Could I drink this for a night if it was put in front of me...sure, but faced with a number of options - this would be a one and done.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, light, orange-amber coloring with steady carbonation action throughout and a thin, low profile, filmy white head. Aromas of caramel, candy sweetness, and a very light hint of toasted character. Flavors are bitter roast and cloying sweet forward, with a sugary caramel lead. Jumbled palate, and the carbonation only adds to the mess. Sharp and light in mouth, with a tangy, sugary sweet aftertaste. The finish is light and fairly clean, but also a bit limp. Lackluster beer, but drinkable if devoid of other options.
