Standard amber hue. It does have a decent head at the start, but it doesn't live until the end. this is probably due to the lower than expected carbonation. While it's around though, there's some decent lacing on the glass.
Nose is quite fragrant and sweet. Aromas of butterscotch, caramel and Belgian candy sugar, which however start to overpower a little too much. this means the nose becomes a bit unbalanced, especially for the style where you're not expecting something sickly.
Taste is quite sweet on the front palate, but quickly turns bitter and dry, with lingering volatiles and phenols. The aftertaste lasts for a long time, and I wish it ended sooner. Mouthfeel very weak and thin.
I feel like it should be better than it is. I might revisit it, but this time it ended up drinking like a very bland beer.
Serving type: on-tap
