Bronze-coloured, very malty, too strong for me.

Born on 12/16/14, gone 03/16/15. Not overly appealing on the smell. The taste is what did it for me - a real smooth one that stays with you. Glad I splurged a bit to try this one.

A: crystal clear; bronze colored; 1 finger off white head that receded to a thin, uneven cap; thick rings of lacing that fade quickly;

S: earthy, floral, a little grapefruit;

T: quite floral through mid-palate; that fades a bit at the end; a bit of caramel/toffee in the background; moderately bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; light to moderate carbonation;

O: not very complex; not much malt character;

First and only beer I've ever tried that gave a distinct taste that I can only describe as "Windex."
