look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Clear copper. Thick two finger head that sticks around for a while. Lots of tiny bubbles and a good amount of sediment floating around. Good amount of lacing. Looks tasty enough but a little too clear for the style (in my humble opinion)

Aroma: Very sweet smelling. Fruity esters. Sugary toasted caramel. Herbal notes take a backseat here - very faint but hops are detectable. Cloves become more apparent as it warms. Smells inviting

Taste: Surprisingly not as much going on as I would have liked. Biscuity up front. Some toastiness. Banana and clove towards the finish. Alcohol is apparent but not overbearing. A little disappointing. Hop bitterness comes out a little more as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Very carbonated. Pretty smooth. Creamy at times, watery at others. Medium bodied.

Overall: I remember liking this beer a lot more the last time I had it. Maybe got a bad bottle or tastes have changed. By no means bad just not great
