Pours a weak head. Orange color

Smell is of sweet malts and very few esters and spices.

This beer isn't worthy of a big descriptive review. It's boozy, the esters aren't there, the malts are sweet, it lacks dryness of the style.

Crisp and dry mouthfeel

This is a poorly done example of the style, it could be worse but I won't bother with this again.
