2.68/5  rDev -15.2%

Pours a two-finger beige head that diminishes somewhat quickly; a thin film lingers. Clear, copper body. Sweet caramel is readily apparent in the aroma; subtle orange, pineapple. Flavor is largely characterized by hop bitterness with a grassy quality; some grapefruit; malt appears late and leaves a bread-like aftertaste accompanied by a lingering metallic bitterness. Medium body with restrained, somewhat crisp carbonation.

All-around unappealing—hop aroma largely missing from the aroma, and hop flavor is grassy with a grapefruit-like bitterness. Caramel malt quality comes through in the aroma but appears only as an afterthought in the taste. The bitter, metallic finish just deepens the disappointment.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and biscuit-like aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of watery malt flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer that has a decent smell but the flavors are pretty lacking.

350ml can poured into a little hotel tumbler

Pours clear coppery brown with a small pale head. Little or no active carbonation that I can see. Color is nice. Smell is almost nonexistent, just a little soap.

Taste is a little soap, and some bland sweetness. Some slight caramel. Overall, unfortunately watery.

Mouthfeel is thinnish and dry. Overall...not such a great beer. Not a repeat buy.

A: The beer is clear reddish amber in color and has slight hints of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of caramel malts in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has light flavors of caramel malts along with hints of tea.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that this beer could be better if it had stronger flavors and a fuller mouthfeel.

3.25/5  rDev +2.8%

A: Pours a clear garnet red with some hints of brown in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall light beige head that reduces to an extremely thin film that covers the majority of the surface and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts with some light hints of dark fruit and tea.

T: Moderate to strong flavors of caramel malts with some moderate notes of tea. There is a very faint note of dark fruits and very little bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy and thin.

O: Well balanced as the beer is not overly sweet or bitter, interesting with the lighter notes of tea. Enjoyable but not a beer that I would run out to find again.
