Fantabulous! Poured at a good temperature with a mammoth, foamy, frothy, fluffy, sudsy, off-white head that settled after a bit and lots of clingy lace. Color is a clear amber yellow with some bubble trails. Aroma is great, somewhat simple, but balanced and still interesting - sweet zone between resin and citrus with a hint of weed. Flavor's like nose, but more complex: sweet up front is quickly dominated by bitter and accented by tang; flavor's being again, like nose plus yeast, apricot,- malt, grain. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish has a bit of an off-flavor, longish, and is quite drinkable with only a suggestion of alcohol. True to style. Killer beer.
