3.63/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Rustic, well-hazed amber-hued body with a small ivory head and minor lacing on the way down.

Smell: Flying B is slight sweetish in the nose of caramel flecked breadiness rounding out notes of earthy spices, bubble gum, and banana.

Taste: Deeply bready malts, some sweetish dark caramel and a fair helping of free-trade banana puree. Hint of coriander. A little fig fruitiness. Medium bitterness. Earthy coriander begins to grow, begins to take over until the drying, still a bit earthy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: I liked it well enough.
