This is alright. It’s more floral than it is smooth. It’s not very caramelly. OK maybe a little. It’s okay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. On tap at the Eccentric Café on June 13. The pour is a nice dark copper, almost ruby color with a thin white head and some spectacular lacing. The aroma is very malty and biscuity. There isn’t a whole lot else going on, but I like the toasty caramel. The flavor is the same; all malt, and a surprising sweetness that doesn’t come up in the nose. The mouthfeel is thin and slick with minimal carbonation and a really sweet, lingering aftertaste

Very nice biscuity and toasty aromas. Bit of roast adds complexity. Very low hop aroma. Just a touch of grapefruit. Little diacetyl that dissipates fast.
Appearance is more copper than red with significant haze. The head is a nice tawny persistent froth. Good lacing.
The flavor is malt forward with strong caramel and toasty notes. Roast finishes the malt with just enough astringency and burnt character to add complexity. The bitterness is low but balances well. Bit of hop citrus and grapefruit on end.
Overall very smooth. Goes down easy with enough creaminess and smoothness to leave a pleasant finish. Very nice.
