3.5/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear orange-brown with a large, frothy, light tan head that lasted a good while. Fair lacing. Smell heavy caramel malt and light perfume hops. Can also detect a light alcohol/soy sauce odor and actually something very solvent like. Medium bodied with a creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish. A long toasted cereal flavor that is lightly sweet and moderately bitter.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Amber, filtered, and an off-white frothy head.

Aroma - Toasty biscuit.

Taste - Toasty, biscuity malts, some sweetness, very smooth, and a slight presence of hops to round off the malts and sweetness.

Overall - Smooth, malty, unique, delicious, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Serving type: bottle
