3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Strong aromas of warm buttered dinner rolls, caramel, and citrus come through initially. As it settles down, more of a bread crust note comes through. It pours a clear, effervescent orange-yellow with an off-white micro to small bubbled head with a soft appearance. A thick-medium ring is retained as well as a mostly full, fuzzy surface. Nice thick stripes of lace are left behind with some webbiness in between. The taste is a medium sweet with a medium light bitter. The oily beer has a medium body with fizzy carbonation. Burnt and toasted qualities are most noticed at first with some caramel and cola, followed by some sweet citrus undertones at the finish. Caramel, toasted bread, and citrus linger for a bit in the aftertaste.
