3.71/5 rDev -1.9%
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.

500ml brown bottle purchased from Whole Foods Los Altos, CA. Brought back to Sydney and shared with Sam and Rich.
Pours a slightly hazed amber hue with a frothy crest of brittle white that settles to a pack of pocked pancake bubbles.
Nose is pretty bland. Slightly weedy vegetative character above a neutral malt sweetness that gives some rounded characters to the aroma. Mostly though, it's par for the course, even if it's not actively dull.
Caramel on the palate, with a slightly salty edge, giving it some pleasant savoury overtones. A hint of copper comes through, with a slight peppery back palate that it mostly lost in a wash of apathetic malt. I don't have a lot to say about the beer just because it doesn't have a lot to say about itself.
Feel is smooth enough, but slightly gassy. It's decent without being anything beyond that.
I found this beer to be exceptionally lacking in style or imagination. It's not even particularly well crafted for what it is. I'd say that it feels by-the-numbers, but I think it even falls short of that. I was pretty unimpressed.

?A- yellowy amber
S- slight yeasty smell
T- full balanced taste with friendly malts, hoppy aromas in your mouth and a straight sugar aftertaste
M- very thin, drinkable feel
O- balanced and smooth- great if you aren't sure whether you want a pale ale or sweet lager
