3.5/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass to a nice hazy straw/orangish color with a quarter-inch head (it was a fairly aggressive pour). Looks good.
Not getting much of a smell from it. Some hops; not much else.
Slight bitterness to it, but a nice mellow flavor overall. There are hints of something beneath the surface--something earthy, but I can't tell what. It adds a nice quality to this--balances out the hops.
It's the usual fantastic mouthfeel I've come to expect from BBC. It's got a creaminess, a good body, and no bite. Bery nice.
Overall, the taste is interesting and complex, and it shows that the right amount of hops can add to and enhance a beer (too often we see way too many over-hopped micros).
