look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a fresh bottle into a pint glass and consumed after dinner.

A: Pours a nice clear light copper/amber with ample bubbling. One finger frothy off-white head with decent retention leaves behind a thin lacing.

S: Sweet, toasted caramel malts with fruity hops (pear, cherry). A slight hint of alcohol and a strange finish...grape? A little chlorine odor towards the end.

T: Fresh malt hits the palate and quickly turns into a nice, toasty caramel, present throughout. Tart fruits come next, similar to smell, but with hints of yeast and tobacco. Complex, but finishes a bit skunky. I like my ambers buttery, and this does not fit the bill.\

M: Very watery, could benefit from more body and carbonation. Not at all resinous.

O: Very disappointing. Smells off, tastes mediocre, and the MF is appalling. I will not be buying this again.
