3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, medium amber color with an average white head. The aroma consists of mostly caramel and toffee. Bready impressions are found, as well as mild grassy undertones. The taste has similarities to the nose. Caramel and toffee are big, along with nuts and bread. I find some unusual lemon flavors as well that come through more strong at the end. Long aftertaste is toffee and lemon. Medium in both body and texture, average to soft in carbonation. For some reason, this one is rather smooth to drink, although it is just heavy enough to be more than just thirst quenching. I could find myself drinking a lot of these.
