Not for me. Just Ok on draft. This could be the problem. Normally I drink 7% ABV or better. This was disappointing for me. The bottle version of this brew tasted better a few months ago.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Look - amber color, two finger head with good lacing.
Smell - biscuits, toasted malts, bananas, brown sugar. on the sweet side, but in a good way.
Taste - heavy on the toasted malts with a clean finish. simple but really delicious.
Feel - light/medium body, medium carbonation
Overall - nice beer. easily enjoyable by all.
