2.95/5 rDev -13.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
STYLE: Extra Special Bitter
LOOK: No lacing to speak of, though the color is nice. Pumpkin, honey, butterscotch. A well-balanced look.
NOSE: Sour pineapple, cantaloupe, and peach. The sourness could be overripe dark fruit, maybe plums, but I’ll go with my gut here. It’s not bad per se.
MOUTH: Two initial reactions — hmmm and eh. It gets better, I think. There’s a distinctive and memorable flavor profile, just not one that I can wrap my tongue around. Toastier than I expected, fish oil, syrup, doughnut glaze. Yeah, you read that right.
