This beer is gold in color. NO foam from pour but left a ring of bubbles. It has a dry crisp aroma. Subtle malt flavor anf the taste became more bland as I drank. Initial flavor was good and seemed to have multiple levels but no other sip was as good as the first. Bland aftertaste. The Ralph Steadman artwork for the labels is the best thing about this beer.

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

had the chance to pick this one up a the store in a mixed sixer recently. served cold and poured into a pint glass.

pour was strong amber color with a nice head of white that reached a height of around an inch and half before settling back down to earth and leaving just thin lacing in its wake, but for the style nice and a classic look. aroma of sweet bready malts and a classic caramel aroma that was cut with a touch of grain. nice and clean with a semi crisp feel and an overall nice balanced body that really seem to let the taste pop. creamy malts finish the show with a really nice clean finish..

overall it was damn drinkable with a super smooth and really just awesome profile.
