3.4/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a red brown with a medium sized head that suffered from not so great retention. No lace.

Grainy sweet malt aroma, thats it.

Upfront caramel malt, huge but one or two dimensional malt profile, Bitterness is not enough to balance out, and leads way to a citrusy hop blast that doesn't mix with the sweetness. Finishes sweet.

Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Slightly out of balance with the flavor timing way off. A bit too sweet for my tastes overall. I wouldn't buy it again when there is many other beers out there.

Serving type: bottle
