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
