Just OK, but I am not a huge fan of the style in general. Smooth and drinkable, but not something I would got out of my way for.

Pours a clear amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is super faint but has light sweet maltiness...caramel and light chocolate. Flavor definitely has light chocolate and mild roastiness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is roasty with cocoa notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(on tap) Clear coppery mahogany with slight white head. Aroma is candy with subtle stone fruit and floral notes. Medium bodied, well carbonated with good mouthfeel: smooth and with a bit of interesting fizz. Unusual taste - there’s a lot of cream soda in there - also candy and sweetish malt with very little bitterness. Despite all these sweet flavours it is not oversweet or cloying. Overall this is an unusual, maybe even clever, beer that is easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured out of a can. Nice frothy head, Deep amber color, with a mild aroma of ice tea and some spice. Tastes of vanilla ice cream, or maybe even a root beer float. Very creamy and delicious! A fabulous summer beer! This would pair well with just about any desert.

Courtesy of craftycarl21 at Smoke and Barrel. Hazy orange pour with a small off white head. Caramel malt and cream soda are pretty much all I got. Vanilla extract. Not awful, but not great.
