Pours a deep amber colour that thins towards the edge. Head is off-white, small bubbles but not as thick as it might have been. Bead is slow but there, not much lace. Alright.
Smell is quite sweet with vanilla-tinged caramel malt giving a hint of bourbon and some apricot notes as well. Hint of ginger and tobacco but mostly inviting malty notes, slight treacle on there as well, I guess. Bit heavy for a lagery style, but hey, it's all good.
Taste is quite tangy upfront. Sweet malt dominates again but the body is lifted so no heavy, syrupy residual substances are left from the sweetness. Develops slight berry notes on the mid and some mango late. Lots of sweetness but it's all dried up by the finish, almost to the point of sharpness.
Still pretty drinkable though, it's got a lot of the flavours you want without the heaviness that might have gone along with being a malty brew.
Serving type: on-tap
