Light brown pour into a tulip glass, with an off-white fluffy creamy head.

Banana taffy hits the nose first, plus booze and rye bread.

Not very complex in the mouth. Caramel malt, honey, and fruit-cake sweetness. Some indeterminate spice. Stone fruit presence, dried fruit, prune, date. Alcohol wafts on the breath in a lilting brightness, keeping things refreshing.

Medium-full bodied, creaminess, cut by med-high carbonation. Lovely mouthfeel. Serious body but still crisp.

It doesn't measure up to Gulden Draak or La Terrible or Brasserie des Rocs. But at $12 a six pack, it's perfectly serviceable, even pleasurable.
