Slightly orangish-yellow. Quite hazy. Thin head.

Aroma of light pale malts, a little spice.

Taste is complex - a grapefruit-like sourness and rich pale malt An undefined but strong herbiness. Spice. Alcohol.

Different and interesting. But doesn't really ring my bell.

12 oz Bottle poured into a 20 Firestone glass.Poured a golden color with one inch head.Smell is very sweet with a hint of grapefruit.Taste remained me of the time I drank mead.Very sweet.Once again this is one of those times where i can`t recommend this to a beer drinker because it`s more like a mead.It`s just to sweet for me.I have loved all the other Dogfish Head beers I have drank before but this one was not up to there standards.Motley out.
