Review from 5/2011 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a clear orange amber, thin head and no lacing. Very light sweet malt aroma. Light sweet malt, a hint of light fruit with a spicy hop flavor and finish. Flavors are subdued, but the progression works nicely. Much more interesting than other steam beers I've had.

Pouts a hazy golden orange color with a 1" white head from a slightly aggressive pour. Head recedes to a thick film with a few tiny spots of lacing in my glass. Smell is of grains and floral hops, a touch of citrus too. Taste highlights the citrus more than the taste, taste is smooth from the grains, I get some coriander, orange, A touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium with a tickle of carbonation as the beer crests the tongue. This is a good beer, not very much like anchor steam, but I think I like this better.
