look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: The hazy amber liquid arrives with a nice cap that leaves a bit of lacing behind

Smell: Biscuity, with stone fruit and a pronounced aroma of candi sugar

Taste: Sweet and biscuity, up front, with pear and candi sugar elements developing in the middle; a bit of fusel alcohol in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: A rather sweet beer that lacks the depth of flavor that the style demands
