4.25/5 rDev +15.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance - pours a gorgeous coper color, very clear and a lot of carbonation. the head is a nice slight off-white, very thick and foamy. there is some real nice lacing as well.
Smell - very fresh smelling beer, i can pick up some light malts, minimal caramel. there is a nice earth tone as well with some base fruits.
Taste - can really pick up the deep caramel along with the malts, there is min aftertaste, very easy drinking beer. there is also some fruit taste, possible pear/pineapple very nice twist. as it warmed, i was able to pick up some vanilla flavour as well.
Mouthfeel - everything in the taste just a little glorified. there wasnt a tremendous amount added, some good volume/fullness in my mouth.
Overall - this would be a fantastic session beer, has a lot to offer the avg joe with some good tasting and easy drinking attributes.
