2013 bottle into FFF Teku
Pour: Dark brown to a deep reddish especially along the edges when held to the light. Head was a good two fingers of khaki brown that receded quickly and left spotty lacing. Further consumption left more visible lacing...not huge but definitely more noticeable.
Smell: Light and easy on the nose with faint citrus hops like a bit of orange, lemon, maybe grapefruit. The malt and roast are in there faintly also. Big surprise to me that the nose on this is lacking.
Taste: Again follows the nose with oh so faint hop presence which is not typical of a FFF offering. Actually lacking some in this category for me as I was hoping for more of the FFF tropical citrus hops. They are there but subdued to me. The malt comes in next with a smooth grain and wood like taste. Some nutty taste mixed in with an ever so slight mild coffee twang and interestingly at the back it finishes more bitter than I expected with the mild hop taste up front. Finishes dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation creating a smooth and creamy feel. Alcohol is non-exisent and finish is dry leaving the palate ready for the next sip.
Overall: Not my favorite FFF beer but I do enjoy this style in general so this was up my alley. I probably will end up liking this more than most. Even though I describe the hop profile as subdued I find it to be adequate for the beer as I continue to enjoy this bottle.
Serving type: bottle
