Extremely interesting. If we (I) were reviewing entirely within the style (sorry, but I think that is *almost* impossible to do) this would be close to perfect!
Absolute clarity in the pour with a great looking head and some lacing that was quite “hard”, with significant lines of foam separated by large areas of non-lacing.
Aroma is perfect to style, with subdued cloves and bananas.
Good mouthfeel, quite crisp.
Taste gives an unusual smoky flavor which significantly detracts from the experience. I’m not at all sure what I am tasting, but it feels artificial and smoke based. Very, very odd! Indeed, a wee bit plastic!
Great in some ways, not so good in others. How odd, I really don’t know what else to say!
