Beer poured a deep ruby color. There was some head to start, but the beer settled and the head dissapeared.
I smelled butterscotch and citrus scents, along with a spicey, almost olive like scent. Interesting!
The taste was lacking something though. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad beer, it just didn't have a lot of flavor depth. A slight hop bite to start things off, followed by a slight citrus burn in the back of the tongue. Overall, this was rather weak on flavors, as far as my tongue can tell.
The mouthfeel and drinkability, though, are excellent. This would make a great sippin' brew, being that it is very light bodied and it's not an all out assault on the senses.
