The nose has a sweet, yeasty quality. As though it hasn’t gone through the frequent funkificaton that yeast often does.
I get a little caramel malt flavors in the middle but they are swiftly bushed aside due to the effervescence of this beer.
Which is, frankly, just too much. It’s far too intense for the style: ambers are usually subtler ales, offering an easy drinking experience. The finish on this is so sparkly, it’s got a little bit of that ‘tongue touching a 9 volt’ quality that throws the whole thing off.
So, this yeast just isn’t working for this style, unfortunately. It’s not undrinkable, but I’d offer it to someone with qualifications.
