Clear golden color with lots of fat bubbles and a small white head, quite good lace for the style. The most notable characteristic of the aroma is a strong alcohol presence, though there is a decent malt aroma which is a bit overpowered by the alcohol fumes. Taste begins with aggressive, spritzy carbonation and alcohol flavors. Beneath the alcohol flavor there is a decent cracker malt presence and some hops and grain as well. Finish is dominated by sweet alcohol flavors and a touch of hop bitterness. Mouth feel is pretty good for this style. This beer is a standout in a category that does not get much respect from beer connoisseurs. It also offers very good value for its modest price. I'll certainly buy this one again.
