3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer poured average as the beer has a decent brown hue that passes through medium light, there is a very mild head ring, and no lacing on the glass. The smell is average with a sweet caramel, toffee smell and gives away to a mildly hoppy finish. The beer tastes decent with a powerful hoppy punch up front then gets very sweet from the caramel malts on the back end. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer mildly poor carbonated, but the sweet bitterness that lingers is decent. Overall, not a bad beer that was under carbonated (like most the beers I had here), had decent caramel malts and hoppiness blended well together.
