Poured at a good temperature with a huge, foamy, cream-colored, long lasting head and lots of lace. Aroma like some other 1 bbl brews is very mild,vinous, malt, spice. Flavor's like nose, tang is in front, then sweet with bitter fairly strong but in the back. Body/carbonation are good, alcohol warmth is heavy although strangely, as it wears on the warmth dissipates. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, no off notes and good sipping.
