look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a hazed orange color with a white soapy head.
Aroma is sweet and malty with floral notes.
In the taste, fruity and sweet, some chewy sweet malt notes. Very agreeable and approachable. Sugary, with a light piney hop presence.
Medium bodied, smooth and even carbonation. Overall quite tasty, really drinkable strong ale. She is an American Beauty. Roll away, adieu

Serving type: bottle
