look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A : pours a bright and inviting deep orange with a large and loose off white head that dissipates very slowly.

S : aroma like an old beer. muted sugar, neutral yeast, hints of caramel and toffee overshadowed by a skunky type aroma.

t : starts light and bubbly, big caramel flavor with a very sweet but not cloying stickiness on the tongue. toffee, a bit of peanut skin flavor as well. decent bitterness at the end with no true hop flavor. its like what you want a werthers original to taste like.

m : lower side of medium bodied with a pleasing effervescence. lingering hop bitterness but overall very nice.

a very delicious beer. despite the slightly old smell. def worth picking up anytime you want a really well made malty brew.
