Amber pour, fine bubbles, good lacing. Great smell, apricot, leather, a little almond, perhaps tangerine. Taste is very smooth, thick, tastes of fresh bread, almond, and only a hint of apricot despite the scent. I could easily knock back a few of these. Definitely an excellent value for the cash.

Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of medium spicy rye malt notes with some bitter and light citrusy hoppy notes. Taste is a very drinkable mix between some peppery and spicy rye malt notes with a bitter and light citrus hoppy finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed with no flaws though not as powerful as expected.
