3.8/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium brown hue with a fair amount of haze to the body. Head is a finger of frothy tan foam. Overall, a nice looking beer!

Smell: sweet malt with a light fruity quality which makes this beer smell almost exactly like sweetened iced tea. It's a little bizarre, but the aroma is so interesting that I have to say I quite like it.

Taste: biscuity malt flavor with a little bit of fruity sweetness. The toasty, biscuity malt quality, while integral to the sweet-tea character, is just a little bit overemphasized in the flavor for my taste. Aside from that, this is a pretty decent brew.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a rather nice creaminess. I like it.

Overall: yes, this beer employs a biscuity malt character which I don't love. However, it is well put-together and, for a beer as biscuity as this, is not bad at all.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle poured into pint tulip glass

A: Crystal clear, very deep copper color, very handsome actually, just slightly off-white head, pretty small once it settles but it's clinging to my glass all the way to the top

S: Aroma is very faint, just a crisp malt flavor with a touch of caramel

T: Again very one dimensional, just that light malt flavor, but has a lingering flavor that is not all that pleasant, the caramel sweetness lingers way too long, decent hops attempt to clear your palate, but the hop flavor combines with the sweetness in a strange way and the hops still don't manage to wipe that sweetness away, I attribute this to a heavy hand with the caramel malt

M: Slight dry finish, good carb, medium-light body, one of the highlights of this beer

O: Tastes like a strange french craft ale version of many lagers, overly sweet and slightly unpleasant flavors that linger on your palate, it needs more lightness of flavor not just mouthfeel, the flavors aren't big and bold but they feel too heavy
