A bit let down. Some carmel notes, but not much else.

From twelve ounce brown glass bottle with no discern able date.

Arom is of a slightly bready malt. Pours a deep amber red with light beige small head. Head disappears rapidly and leaves a tracing of lace. Taste is of dark fruits; date and fig, some mild berriness. Bit of bitey bitterness in the aftertaste. Warming for a chilly evening.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a coppery brown color, with a short off-white head that fades very quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, tea, honey, some fruit and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character up front. Then some mildly sweet flavors of caramel, tea & honey come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this beer was somewhat better than I expected it to be. Although there are better options within the style, this beer is worth drinking for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
