Nice looking pale orange pour with some chill haze. Small, but perfectly formed head, not much lacing, what there is, is fairly watery.
Malt acidic sweetness in the nose. Not a strong smell at all.
Tastes are sweet malts. It’s much sweeter than I was anticipating, and it drinks fairly sweet too. Small bitter finish with a tinge of hops, but not much to speak of. Smooth, nice mouthfeel.
Yes, this is an above average brew, and it IS a drinkable beer, but at the same time it seems very, very ordinary for a brewery that is so well thought of for its 20th anniversary beer. In that respect it is disappointing.
