Kansas

3.55/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a true amber with an unceasing thick head, off-white, and fully held up by judicious carbonation. Whispy lace here and there on the glass.

Smell is nutty, fruity Munich complex with a light apple essence lingering on top. Light baking spice is a ghost in the offing.

Tastes quite toasty and dry, and very lean, and showing almost-mint hop touch at the edges. Opens to a wider palette, but not that wide, of simple red apple notes with light yeast spice, similar in cinnamon form to the scent. The toasty, roasty Munich malt touches appear again in the finish lending a crusty crunch.

Need to age, apparently, to show its more tart and acidic side.
