Pours a nice clear amber color with a small white head made of small bubbles that dissipates rapidly. Sweet bouquet, toffee notes but not overpowering. The Alien is sweet from sip to swallow but the aftertaste is sour and very slightly metallic. This beer is not very refreshing but is modest alcohol contest and its lack of palate complexity do not make it particularly hard to drink.

12 oz bottle bought on impulse for the name.

Appearance was an amber color with white head

Smell sweet malt with a light hops

Taste was a mix of oak, vanilla and some smokiness to it.

Mouthfeel medium with some carbonation feel

Overall not bad but nothing that really stands out except the name.

A- It's an amber. It poured an amber color. Nothing too impressive.

S- Spices and a few hops.

T- Spice with an unpleasant hop finish. Not the good kind.

M- Not too much here.

D- I'll not be having another.

Definitely brewed for alien enthusiasts. Not a whole lot of effort here.
