I poured a bottle of this into my favorite stein givin it ample height to see the color of the pour as well as the ability to develop a nice head.
The color is a nice amber color with a creamy head with a quite impressive head retention somewhat similar to that of guinness.
Smell was not overpowering, nice hints of a slight hoppy scent, very earthy and floral.
Slight hoppy taste with a nice crisp finish.
Not a very clean taste, slightly oily, yet smooth. Slightly dry tasting finish.
Definitely a drinkable beer, not something I would try to keep on hand for everyday, but not a bad beer to try from time to time. Not something I would serve to try to inmpress another beer lover.

Pours true gold. Perfect amber. White head starts fat and falls of webby and sticky, then to a film on top before it goes away completely. not too much lacing. Lots of bubbles to look at. Nose is lovely. Sweet hint of pear and some lovely soft biscuit malt sweetness. A bit more clove than I expected at first but nice and a very faint banana in back. Some sweet flower petals and as it warms some pungent bitter grass. Lovely in the drink with a crisp and dry malt.A softness that is actually excited by all those bubbles. The clove and the fruit combine lovely and earthy at first then give way to a fruity middle made up of light peach and a little pear around the edges. The finish is dry and drying to the palate with a light remnant of the malt sweetness, a bit of ticklish spice and that lovely peach. It lingers but not long .
Lovely adn everything it should be.
