Impressive head that settles very slowly. Dirty gold color.

Sweet with a raisin aroma. A bit yeastiness in the background. Good hop balance for the style.

Very smooth but less sweet than the aroma. In fact, it's a bit dry. There's a spicy element to this--licorice? The aftertaste is very dry. Thin for the style but still holds up to the carbonation.
