look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5
Poured from a 12 oz can.
Poured a nice copper color, with a tan head, noticed a lot of carbonation.
Definitely smelled malty, with hints of fruit, and slight spice. Smelled creamy, which is something that I would expect from a beer like this. Absolutely no hops come through.
I don't know if I had an older can or what, but the taste was more along the lines of a less watered down malt liquor, with a slight hop taste in the end. No fruity, creamy taste that I would have expected from the smell.
The mouthfeel was watery and over-carbed.
Overall, I was really disappointed. Like I said above, I don't know if I had an older can, or a bad batch? I would really like to try this again, because the reviews of this beer are decent, and I think I'll give this a second chance. The taste was nothing like the aroma, which was promising.
