This beer is a deep gold color with some cloudiness, a little chill haze but more to it than that. The head is a nice, strong, fluffy pillow that takes time to drop lower than one finger and never very low, laying down strips of broken sheeting on the walls of the glass to about halfway down, where it breaks up a bit.
The malt base is strong in this beer, and it's a sweet one. The main element is a fruity sort of aroma and flavor as esters, malts and yeast work to bring more sweetness than anything with a mix of tropical fruits, citrus and honey, with maybe some biscuit behind it. Hops are very mild, offering just a hint of grass and leaf.
The body is a sturdy one, a medium that isn't too heavy for the style and offers a nice, less than overbearing thickness off a fluffy carbonation that seems to lighten it one the tongue without taking from the body. It has a very nice balance of smoothness and crispness, both of which remain strong.

Decent. It seemed better in the past, but it could just be me.
