3.8/5 rDev -3.8%
Pours brownish amber with foamy almost tan head. Some visible carbonation. Not much retention or lacing. Somewhat hazy
Smells rich and buttery. A little sweet. Spicy/herbal
Taste follows the nose. Rich butter and bready malts. Crisp white apples and some caramel sweetness. The finish has some spicy hop bitterness with a lingering floral aftertaste. Somewhere in the middle there is a trace of alcohol that actually pairs quite nicely with the spicy finish
Feels warming and smooth. Tastes more light-bodied than you would expect
I enjoyed this beer. I would get from time to time. Well-balanced with a nice flavor profile

3.49/5 rDev -11.6%
Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a ruby-highlighted caramel coloring with a thin, filmy, white head. Nose of apricot and mango fruit sweetness and a caramel backbone. Tangy aromas, overall. Flavors of roast initially, with a biscuit backbone, honey and fruit sweetness, and a spicy blend overlay. Light bodied, with a roasty and tangy sweet aftertaste. CLean, slightly sharp finish. Surprisingly easy to drink despite a slightly elevated ABV and heavy flavor profile.
