3.58/5 rDev -6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a bottle into a mug.
Appearance: Orangish copper color that is a little cloudy. Pour a decent head that did not last long. There is a ton of lacing.
Smell: Sweet spicy smell that comes across as clean. Kind of has a floral smell and somewhat artificial. I also get brown sugar.
Taste: Clean crisp taste with a decent amount of floral. I also get a taste of brown sugar and lots of malt.
Mouthfeel: Slight bitterness towards the beginning that finishes smooth. Decent amount of carbonation that has a clean crisp feel. Goes down smooth.
Drinkability: Overall, a good beer. There is something in the smell and that I do not like, that carry's over just slightly into the taste, I can't put my finger on it. Good beer but not my favorite.

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Deep copper amber with a 3cm, foamy white head that looks slightly creamy. with great retention & zero movement until you actually take a drink.
Lots of malts & sweetness on the nose with caramel too but not much hops, some earthy ones appear though. Well balanced with some floral notes with a few dark fruits. Sweet, fruity & good strength.
Sweet malts & caramel flavours that match the nose well. There is some background fruits coming through with some light, floral hops featuring as well but again it's the malts that lead the way.
Smooth & fairly light bodied, almost watery in parts but there was a pleasant sweetness throughout & a clean, slightly dry finish that has a lingering bitterness to it.
This one started very well with the smell being a particular highlight but sadly things started to fade slightly after that with the taste seeming a little watery, more so that I would have liked. Not one I'd pick up again I'm afraid.
