4.25/5 rDev +11%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12 oz brown long-neck bottle with no freshness date. Blurb about the beer on the back label.
Appearance: Light reddish amber with a frothed milk like off white head.
Smell: Flowery and tea like hop aroma, hints of fruit and grain similar to a shortbread.
Taste: Full bodied with a somewhat slick and chewy malt mouth feel. Hop bitterness is clean and abundant, just enough to level the malt. Quite fruity and malt sweetness flexes a bit also, residual sweetness stays until the end. A bit grainy with hints of toasted malt and caramel. Soft flowery hop flavour and a light bready malt sweetness linger on and on in the finish.
Notes: Good fruity / hoppy mix, the malt character cradles the complexities perfectly. A little hefty and very flavourful … this beer shows again that AVBC knows craft beer. 5.8% abv.
