The smell of malt, plum fried. Foam poor.
Plum also like taste, but watery, weak bitterness, a little sour and malt. The end like even more watery.

Appearance is amber with a small white head leaving very light lace.

Smell is sweet, kind of dirty dishwater, ethanol.

Taste is generic, a little sweet, and heavy phenols.

Mouthfeel is lighter, a little sticky.

Drinkability is easy in that there is nothing too it. On the other hand, it's generic cheap ale. The label had snow on it, I thought it would be more of a winter warmer, and perhaps that is the intent, but it's way to thin and generic.

Poured from a 300 ml bottle.
The colour is light amber, transparent, with a one finger head which quickly dissolves leaving light lacing on the glass.
Light fruity and caramel aroma.
Taste is lightly bitter.
Quite thick on the body, a bit oily too and medium carbonation.

330ml bottle poured into Leffe chalice. One finger head, dark mahogany colour, dense but clear. Had a slight citrus aroma, I could't detect anything else. Fairly similar taste to Palm Special, had a bit more malt and a more bitter finish. Despite this I'd say it had a weaker taste with less flavour. The mouthful was slightly heavy but nice, average carbonation.
