a: golden amber straw color - very clear. 2 finger frothy head that dies down pretty quickly

s: sweet clean caramel malts, some yellow grains, straw, and a hint of berries

t: follows the nose pretty closely. immediately there is an abundance of sweet caramel, bready dough, some of that earthy straw. at the end of the mouth there is a faint bitterness - rom something like an earthy tea bag

m: its a medium mouthfeel - a little fuller than i expected. there is a small amount of carbonation, but not much

o: its a sweet and rich beer that has just enough bitterness to cut it. a good beer to drink and enjoy without having to think too much

Pours a deep burnt orange colour, a bit flat. Head is just a film of cloudy off-white. Looks like a beer. Congrats.

Smells fruity, with tropical notes. Passion, paw-paw, banana and some exotic spice. Pepper, Szechuan even maybe, some vanilla and peach. Intriguing.

Taste is more pedestrian. Bit of peach fruit, some notes of banana, apricot and some hop on the back. Pretty dry, though, and not bursting with flavour. I like the subtlety, it adds to drinkability but it seems like a lot of other beers without much special or unique to recommend it.

Bit of body, but no texture. Bit bland to be honest.

Nice enough flavours, could definitely drink all night. But just doesn't interest me that much.
