Drank out of a bottle. Small amount of head that lasts a while and pours thick. Tastes excellent--you can taste a bit of honey. It is nice, smooth and the carbonation is perfect. Tastes even better when ice cold.

Has a nice bitter after taste and really holds the flavor well. You will want to retain the flavor in your mouth.

The beer smells delicious and really makes you crave it. You can smell the freshness of the hops and that overall good flavor to it.

On the bottle, the beer prides itself on having all natural, fresh ingredients with no additives, and after drinking this beer you really do notice the overall freshness and goodness of it.

I highly enjoyed the beer, and regret having waited all this time to finally try it.
