3.4/5 rDev +6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug. ABV is 4.5% according to the label.
Appearance: medium amber-brown hue with a haze-free body and a thin layer of frothy white foam atop. Not bad.
Smell: sweet malt aroma which is caramelly, nutty and a little bit toasty. Good, but unfortunately there's a bit of a plasticy aroma here which detracts a bit from the otherwise stylistically-accurate bouquet.
Taste: nutty, toasty and biscuity malt with a mild bitterness and no hop flavor. Not bad, but I don't love it.
Mouthfeel: light body with a decent carbonation. It's a bit more prickly than creamy, but that is OK.
Overall: not a bad beer, but the brewers went a direction that I don't love. That said, it's a very drinkable beer. It appears I rated this beer high above the average; I think that has to do with rating to style. For the style it is not bad; for my own palate, I don't love it.
Serving type: bottle
