A: Pours a clear copper color with a quickly receding cream colored head and a good deal of visible carbonation in the glass.

S: Overly sweet and grainy smell that isn't really doing it for me. Honey, pistachio and a sweet adjunct-y smell that has just an edge of nuttiness to it.

T: Nutty and a touch bitter, almost like pistachio nut oil. A lot of graininess, malt syrup, slight almond and a tad of faded grassy hops. Mouthfeel is way heavy, allowing the sweetness to become overbearing. Not recommended.
