2.78/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

The colour is red-amber (30 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head sinks to a beige lid, leaving no lacing.

The smell is semi-sweet with malty notes of nuts and caramelised sugar. American hoppy flavours of citric fruits, juniper berries and a smooth bitterness. Sadly there are some volatile plastic flavours present, too.

The taste got passing hoppy notes of citric fruits and pine needles, but it is mostly the red malts that I notice. Again, there are some yeasty and plastic-phenolic flavours going on. It is not unpleasant, but still unclean notes exist. Pleasant bitterness, more British tan American in strength. Medium body. The aftertaste got some nuts and woody flavours, clean bitterness and a touch of white grapes. Plastic notes and hints of moss in the finish.

The carbonation is medium to strong; the mid-sized bubbles fresh. The liquid is mid-smooth.

Basically, a beer with potential, too bad about the plastic off-flavours, though.

A: The color is reddish golden with a very small white fluffy head. Almost no lacings.

S: Rich semi-sweet caramell malt, buttery. Nettles and sour cherries kernels. Red apples. Some faint bitter hops.

T: Raspberries and citric notes. Caramell malts, buttery. Some American hops; both bitter as well as floral; citric and piney. Cherries and apples along side with ripe oranges.

M: Aftertaste is bitter and quite long-lasting. Body is meduim while carbonation is smooth and mild.

O: Not bad, but not great either. Interesting with a raspberry-vibe.
