Beer poured from bottle into a Nonic shaped glass
A - Beer pours with a one finger white colored head; frothy; clear dark copper colored body; slightly carbonated; head doesn't hold very well; some lacing and the body appears thin and watery
S - Lager airiness, but not a lager by an means; nutty malt notes; touch of caramel; white grape and champagne; yeast comes up after the beer warms a little and fruity notes make slight appearance; soapy/rinse nose
T - Very light in flavor; it really tastes like a rinsed out sparkling wine and has flavor characteristics of a lager/pilsener, not an ale; peach/nectarine; grass
M - Thin to medium body beer; slightly effervescent; beer doesn't have much ale flavor and really lacks anything strong in taste; crisp but dry
D - Overall, not bad; after it warmed up a bit, I started to like it but it really wasn't a beer I was fond of; I would pass on this, as its really struggling to figure out its identity, is it a ale or lager; stay away from this Jackal/Hyde drama

Undated bottle at 35 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of malt
Head small (2 cm), fizzy, off white, quickly diminishing to 2 mm ring and scattered bubbles
Body light amber, clear
Flavor of light malt, slight hoppiness, and just a hint of diacetyl. No alcohol taste. Flavor very short-lived.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.
Very nice ale, have consumed many and would recommend it. The fizzy head and lack of lacing detract from the appearance. Still not a tasty as a Yorkshire dark ale.
