Tried on-tap at the brewery in Bermondsey on the Beer Mile.

Pours an amber-red colour, deep and quite clear in the glass. Body is light, but pleasant enough. Head is a yellow-beige/taupe colour, coarse but persistent, leaving sudsy, complex lace. Carbonation is fine but minimal. Looks pretty good all up.

Weird spice characters come through on the nose—smells like a Thai restaurant. Sweet caramel, malty roast and some pepper. There's also a honey sweetness that sticks around and an odd creaminess. Interesting at least.

Taste is clean and mild for the most part, but things come and go at least. There's a mild toasty sweetness on the front, and a frothy spicy character that builds up on the mid-palate. Some roast marks the back, but by then the palate has dropped out a lot leaving it clean but empty.

Feel is pretty weak—which is disappointing.

Easy enough to drink. Carbonation is coarse though, which makes it a bit much. It's not bad, but I had at least one better beer from Partizan on this visit.
