Review from 5/2011 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a clear orange amber, thin head and no lacing. Very light sweet malt aroma. Light sweet malt, a hint of light fruit with a spicy hop flavor and finish. Flavors are subdued, but the progression works nicely. Much more interesting than other steam beers I've had.
