      Appearance (3)
      Amber. Slight haze. Low foamy head.
      Aroma (3)
      Very fruity. Mild toasty, bready malt.
      Mouthfeel (7)
      Medium body. Almost completely still. Sweet malt, biscuity. Very mild fruitiness. Acetone and acetaldehyde become prominent as time passes.
      Overall Impression (1½)
      It's not bad, but a little more condition would cut the sweetness, and a little less dissolved oxygen would cut the off flavors.
