Well I ordered this one as it was about as crazy as it got on the beer list, including in bottles. I was pleasantly surprised.

The appearance was the weakest part. Not a great head, lacing was decent but nothing spectacular. Was almost a brown with a hint of red.

Smelled good, malty tones with some faint aromas from hops.

Was incredibly smooth. Hops were minimal as per style, more aroma hops than acidic hops. Was an above average and way above expectations flavor.

Was a little light bodied but carbonation was perfect. Drinkability was higher and i was surprised to find myself wanting another, I even recomended it to another at the table.

Serving type: on-tap
