This Tadcaster is a Tad over hyped methinks. While it is indeed very smooth and easy to drink there is almost no flavor to it. Light bodied. I get intensely sweet caramel, honey and a splash of espresso on the nose. But the flavor is watery on the start and the finish. The little hops character which is there is well balanced against the unique sweetness the oats add. So I do get why it is a widely enjoyed stout, but I prefer something more flavorful. It is good, just not my favorite.
