Nice pop on the release of the swing top. Pour leads to a bit of drab looking red brown body, but a nice head and some lacing.
Aroma is fairly non-descript except some sweet alcohol. A tiny bit of sherry, but it’s sort of watered down. Not bad, but not really very distinct.
Tastes are certainly malt based, but they are fairly reserved. Lots of sweetness but this is tempered by the lack of body.
Mouthfeel a little thin. Some lingering alcohol and fruitiness in the finish.
Slightly disappointing because this has huge potential but is lacking something. It’s a winner in waiting.
