3.43/5 rDev +7.9%
This is nice rich amber color with a solid creamy looking head. The head retention is exception stays big a foamy the whole time.
The smell is very faint although from what I could get it was malty and a little bitter and hoppy.
The taste is bitter and a little bit sweet, feels kind of watered down.
The mouthfeel is silky smooth and thick with very little carbonation.
Overall this is the thickest creamiest beer I've had but the taste is just ok kind of boring. I did enjoy it though all the same.
Not as good as Bass and no way near as good as Sam Smith's.

Into a pint glass:
A: pale golden brown colored body yielding a pure white one finger head tops the pint and an off-colored slightly tan level appears separate from the golden pale brown body and rises to disappear in the head. Barely any carbonation is seen rising. Even after several sips, the head stays throughout most of the beer. No rings are left.
S: as many times as I smelled it even after it warmed, there still wasn't anything there.
T: bitter malts yield a subtle sweetness that tickles some slightly floral tones yet helps to bring out a breadiness that tells my palate to have more. Some banana also comes out.
M: light with low carbonation. It leaves a wet feel. Still, its smooth and creamy.
O: my only disappointment is the smell. Everything else is well done. I would have this again as long as I'm not forced to smell it (not like that would do anything because there's nothing there).
