A_Nice straw yellow color, medium head. Noted the carbonation.

S_Just OK, yeast aroma. This is followed by a bit of hay.

T_Like it smells... yeast and hay. The finish is dry with a ton of alcohol.

M_Medium feel with an alcohol linger. Liked the carbonation.

D_It's well made beer, just nothing that appealed to me. I won't bother with this again. The aftertaste was the final "straw".

A - It's golden, with some bubbles coming to the top. Big head, some lacing.

S - There isn't a whole lot of smell on this one, it's like someone took a beer and just turned the volume down on it.

T - This is just horrible. Maybe I got a bad bottle, tastes like metal and copper. Disgusting.

M - Other than the bad taste, light bodied, sits alright in the mouth, decent carbonation.

D - Once again, easy enough to drink, other than the horrible taste that makes me want to spit it out.

This is a pretty bland, processed tasting Abbey ale.

The pour reveals a deep gold beer with a copious ivory head that recedes quickly. It leaves lots of lace behind. The aroma is of perfumey Belgian malts and sugars, quite sweet really. There a subtle spicyness in the nose as well. The taste is flawed. It starts of quite well with a passable malt presence and good spiceyness. Then a metallic saccarine sweetness emerges. The mouthfeel and drinkability of this beer is ruined by the sweetness. It leaves a chemically aftertaste thats not pleasant at all. Ive experienced this with other bottles as well. This is definitely a beer Im staying away from.
