4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into tulip glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is strong bready and caramel malts with floral and fruity hints. Mildly astringent. Appearance is hazy dark reddish-orange with discernible floating sediment, minimal sparkle, finger-width fluffy beige head with fair retention and nice lacing. Taste is much like aroma with front half sweet malt and second half yielding to more nuanced fruit notes and some citrus. Palate is medium bodied with thick, sticky texture, esophageal warmth and sweet, long finish. Overall, avoids being overly sweet and has a bit of hop complexity.
