Served: poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

A - a light honey, cloudy coloring. The head was a solid one, just shy of two fingers of creamy, thick foam that lasted quite a while.

S - Sweet yeasty notes that you would expect, hints of spice (coriander or clove?) Also a little lemon... But very subtle.

T - Soooo very smooth going in, flavors of mild banana and yeast with a touch of hops. A joy to have on the tongue!

M - Full bodied with subtle carbonation. Smooth, without a lingering finish but slightly sweet.

O - This beer was a treat. So smooth, easy on the palate, left me wanting more!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - honey orange with paper white foamy head.

S - a bit tame. I was afraid this was going to be a generic lager and was pleasantly surprised.

T - smooth not overly sweet or bitter. Great aftertaste.

M - smooth no burn no fusil.

D - great anytime beer. Like a beer-champagne with a hint of pancake.
