3.75/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Pours a beautiful golden amber color, with a finger of off-white head, speckled with orange highlights, that dissolved into a lacing of foam that covered virtually the entire top of the beer in wispy clouds.
Aroma: Very malty and bready. Smells like a bakery. A little sweetness in the nose too. Slight hints of citrus and spice, like orange peel and black pepper.
Taste: Very malty up front, followed by some spice of black pepper, slight hints of clove and coriander, and finished by a good balance of hops. Caramel and honey provide a good sweetness to round out the flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. At an ABV of 5.2%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.
Overall: I love this beer!! It’s one of my favorite American beers. Always solid, always flavorful, always good. There’s always some of this in my fridge.
Serving type: bottle
