Pours a clear straw color with a nice 2 finger head that leaves a really good lace down the 16oz pub glass as is disappears.

Smell is really fragrant as I could smell it as it was sitting 2 feet away. Has a skunky smell that is not so unpleasant. Upon closer examination it has more of a strong malty smell that mixes with an alcohol smell.

Taste is pretty decent. I get that smell translated into a taste with the strong malts with the alcohol smell that is pretty good when you have a few swigs. It develops into that crisp clean taste that is characteristic of a lager.

Mouthfeel is ok for such a clear beer. Carbonation is really nice.

Overall, a pretty decent beer. I really like it and wouldnt mind having it again especially on St Patrick's Day.
