4.58/5 rDev +12.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured a 500-ml can into a large pub ale glass.
Appearance - beautiful copper-gold colour with a thin 1/4-inch beige sustained head. Foamy up along the sides and just a modest amount of visible carbonation.
Smell -strong, dominant aroma of toffee. Noticable roasted barley. Further along I detect some fresh floral hops waiting underneath.
Taste - Oh, WOW! What a great overall impression. Smooth and malty, aroma flavourful and a wicked clean finish. This is possibly one of the best tasting beers I've had in a while! Aftertaste is light with a nice subtlety remeniscent of cut fruit.
Mouthfeel - velvety-smooth with a super-clean finish. Just a little too noticeable waxiness on the teeth and palate.
Drinkability - this is definitely a special beer and one that should be reserved for limited enjoyment. In that sense, it ain't fit for a session beer in my books. On the other hand, a real pleasure to consume and I would definitely seek it out again.
