2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours reddish-amber with very little head. Not much on the nose at all--some warming alcohol, apricots, melon, and a syrupy sweetness. Taste is light heat with some tropical fruit, a big sweet malt backbone, and the same syrupy, sugary sweetness. The alcohol was just how I like it, but the stickiness and sweetness was too much for me--and that’s coming from someone that like sweet beers.
