Crystal clear honey color. Thin head resolves to a ring of foam and laces a little.
Aroma has a malt sense with various spices. I think I can smell anise, nutmeg, and maybe spruce. Maybe a hint of clove. This smells wonderfull.
Very sweet and somewhat balances by a piney bitterness. The spices add interest. The aftertaste is still sweet. There is a sense of diacetyl but it blends well. Very little sense of alcohol.
Smooth and lightly carbonated. Medium to full bodied.
Very drinkable. Dangerous.
Serving type: on-tap
