Puors a very nice mid-copper color with good head and lacing. Nice deep malty scent with a nice earthy/floral hop aroma in the nose. Great taste, with a good malt backing, wonderful pepper-spice rye grains, and a very nice earthy-floral hop finish. Goes down well, with just a bit of hop and rye roughness.

To be completely honest, I'm not entirely sure if this is what was included in the flight. This was certainly the beer that was supposed to be included, but the waitress admitted that several of the beers were different from what was indicated on the flight but she didn't really know all what had been poured, and furthermore continued to mix-up what was physically present throughout her attempted explanation of the flight. Looking at pictures online, however, this looks like what was included. Alas, the flavors were very much of banana and clove, so I'm not really sure. If this indeed the beer I think it was, it was quite good.

Poured into large pilsner glass.

A - Poured slightly cloudy dark amber color with average head that quickly dissipated leaving slight lacing around the glass.

S - Strong floral aroma with pine hops and slight scents of malts, citrus and caramel.

T - Slightly sweet malts and caramel upfront sharply turning to bitter citrus and pine hoppy finish.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation.

O - Very refreshing but unbalanced and name is totally misrepresenting the style.
