11.2oz bottle into a Teku
no bottle dates

A: Pours a dark brown, nearly cola colored, with 1.5 fingers width of fizzy light tan colored head that dissipates down fairly slowly and leaves some nice lacing. 3.75

S: Caramel, subtle lactic acidity, dark fruits. Meh. 3.5

T: Lighty sour, dark fruits, caramel. Fairly sweet, with a nice balacing subtle tartness. 4

M/D: Lighter side of medium body, carbonation on the heavier end which is appropriate, quick refreshing and drinkability is good. 4

O: Good but not great. There are certainly more impressive examples of the style, but refreshing and pretty tasty. 3.75
