The monkey is cloyingly sweet and will make you drunker then a monkey before you know it and from there a bit of a what I think about the good but somewhat over the top beer. The monkey pours a nice golden color with a head the flairs up for a few seconds but descends to nothing but a ring around the color lace. The smell is of a carnival full of funnel cake sugar and cotton candy downright sweet to the nostrils and will bring you right back to your childhood of riding unsafe rides at the county fair. The initial taste surprisingly is not sweet but more of a dry pepper then that where that ends and it takes you on the roller coaster of sickeningly sweet, which by the way isnt a bad thing to me, malts and slight hint of honey on bread. This beer more so then any other reminds me of my childhood of going to the fair and eating crap foods and thus is overly drinkable and will remind you of your job in morning when you walk in there with a head split and kidneys of stone. Good beer none the less drink it and remember some past times even though you wont remember what happened the night you drank it.
