Poured into a pint.
A: Amber in color. Medium carbonation pours into a 1 and a half finger, off-white, foamy head. Faint carbonation continues to rise throughout. Slowly dissipates leaving a bit of bubbly foam when it's all said and done. Spotty, sticky lacing remains as you drink.
S: Malt, hops, and pine.
T: Sweet syrupy malt, sharp hops, and pine nuts.
M: A heavy syrupy feel. Strong alcohol taste. A bit cloying, and a slightly metallic aftertaste.
D: Definitely one to sip and enjoy.
Really good atmosphere. Solid appearance, and really distinctive nose. Flavor is not complex, but plenty of it. Heavy and syrupy body as you'd expect from this style, and hoppy and tinny as you'd expect more specifically from the American version. Really nice to savor. Great quaff (but you gotta like the style).
