Served in a stemmed pilsner glass. Mildly hazy copper coloring with honey gold highlights when held to a light. The head is three fingers tall and ever sip leaves an almost chunky ring around the glass. Perfect head retention as it stays around as a thick blanket covering the brew till the last drop.

Smells sweet and malty with some honey and ripe citrus fruit from the hop.

The taste is full of toasted bread, sweet citrus, honey, and little bit of boozy sweetness, and dry bitter hop on the palate. Finises dry and bitter sweet.

Medium bodied, a little slick on the palate, but the drink-ability of this beer is dangerous! It does not have the alcohol volume of a session beer but it is so easy to drink! I will tell you that if you session drink the brew you will end up like the guy on the bottle. There are stronger beers but this would be the whiskey of beers in my book. Not by taste, but by effect.
