2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a hazy somewhat amber/brown colored body with a one fingered white foamy head (nice bar pour), light lacing tries to cling to the glass.
The smell had a soapy somewhat bland caramel nutty malts.
The taste was malty - tries to be sweet but has an English sort of that soapy blandness pervading the flavoring. The aftertaste has a quick bland soapinessk quick dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on the body, sessionable - maybe kinda for the most part. Carbonation is lighter than some Ambers I’ve had.
Overall, nothing thrilling, but nothing bad, however I don’t see myself coming back to this.
