Served with no head, only rim bubbles. But there's decent spotty lace on the glass. Dark gold color, reasonably clear.

A bit sweet to the nose. Lots of caramel.

Highly carbonated with a touch of "macro" brewery flavors. Rather sweet but not rich. Short, cloy aftertaste. Overall, disappointing.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, some sweetness. Taste is bready, malts, alcohol, some light apple, a bit unusual aftertaste. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a mediocre beer.

From my point of view really nice beer; strong enough but not so alcoholic you cannot have 2 in a row.

A: Amber with a creamy head

S: Faint, but somehow persistant, alcoholic smell with hop notes

T: Smooth and malty, The light thickness and flavors work in the mouth creating a tasteful and low bitter beer. The complexity can be better tasted when comparing several intakes. Again in my opinion the mix makes an almost perfect beer for repetitive drinking. ( Please, see my tastes have been raised in Europe. )

M: Refreshing and quite drinkable.

O: Astonishing price/quality ratio ( $1.5 / 1 Eur ) Refreshing in Summer when served almost chilled and able to join a stew in Winter.
