3.5/5 rDev -4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A- Into the mug with gusto- a finger of cream white head atop a deep bronze colored liquid.
S- A weak smell with some notes of generic soft wheat bread, and malt syrup. I realize a mug might not be the most conducive to aromas, but even so I'm really struggling to pick up much of anything.
T- Here the beer shines through- there's caramel, overripe cherry, sourdough bread. A good bit of malt flavors, and some bitter earthy hops to boot. Mostly the caramel is the strongest, but not in an overbearing way at all.
M- Fairly sweet and syruppy. I think I could live with that in a stronger beer/O-fest, but it doesn't quite fit this one.
O- A decent Ofest with some good flavors, just not quite enough power in the aroma, and the mouthfeel was kind of off for me.
