It arrives at the table with a tight, topographically variegated foamy cap surmounting a perfect amber body with a perpetual upward swirl of tiny bubbles. The enticing aroma is of toffee, or, perhaps, flan. The beer's flavor brings home the aroma's promise of savory, sophisticated sweetness. It's a soft and smooth taste--almost that of a "comfort food"--yet deeply satisfying as beer. The texture is rich. For all of its 8%, it goes down easily. I'm a little reticent about giving a beer this high of a rating, but this is pretty good stuff.

3.76/5 rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma very faint piney aroma
Head Large (4.5 cm), off white, frothy,
Lacing good – mostly complete lacy rings of very small bubbles; slowly diminishing to a thick irregular frothy layer
Body medium yellow, slight haze
Flavor very mild, slight hop bitterness rapidly yielding to a faint malt sweetness, fading to a bitter aftertaste. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.
A pleasantly refreshing ale which neatly hides the 8% ABV. This seems like a lawnmower beer until it runs over you.
