Poured into a pint glass


Appearance: hazy brownish red with a 2 cm head. It looks creamy and inviting.

Smell: Citrus, Malt, and sweetness. It has a mild smell that is somewhat unexpected, but the smell is delicious.

Taste: Initial taste is bitterness with a sweet tail end. The hops are strong with this one, but the malt really mellows it out. There is a pleasant burning from the alcohol, but it is really not the dominant taste. The fact that this beer is 13% ABV is a bit frightening. As the beer warms, I realize that the alcohol is affecting me very strongly. The beer is delicious, and as it warms it only gains complexity.

Mouthfeel: Very thick. The carbonation is light, but nice. This mouthfeel of this beer indicates that it is a sipper for sure.

Drinkability: 13% ABV really impairs this, I would often love to have another after finishing this but under most circumstances it would be a bad idea.

Serving type: bottle
