      Appearance (3)
      Beautiful tawny amber color. Low head.
      Aroma (3½)
      Dark bread. Mild banana, some smoke. Odd hint of perfume.
      Mouthfeel (7)
      Medium-big body, which is much lighter than I expected. Surprisingly low carbonation. Sweet malt, dark caramel. Very mild banana behind the wheat. Just a little warming.
      Overall Impression (1½)
      Not bad, but not complex. Might be a bit oxidized.
