Appearance: Clear golden honey in color. A frothed up egg white head with nice rocky form and sticky lacing.

Nose: Sweet bread, candied fruits, tropical fruit, fruit cake.

Taste: Citrus and honey. Alcohol heat at the end. Carbonation is light, with some crispness in the middle. Some tropical fruits leading in to that alcohol heat. Grain in the middle which melts away.

Notes: Totally worth a shot. Not a ton of activity here, but very, very well executed.
