When poured out of the bottle, generated a good amount of foam and a smooth head the disappeared within a couple of minutes. After that there was no lace left on the glass. The smell is faintly grassy and fresh. Color is exceptionally clear reddish amber with almost no carbonation past the initial pour (looks almost exactly like a strong brewed iced tea minus the ice). The taste leaned distinctly towards toasted caramel malt with a light dose ot delicately floral hops. The best quality about this beer has to be its velvety smooth mouthfeel that is enhanced by the thick malty body, that is much more evident here than in other fest beers I've had. It was almost entirely lacking in bitterness and left no aftertaste. A decent beer for the style.
