660ml clear bottle with a BB (Best Before) freshness date on the neck, a small blurb about the beer is on the back label.

Musty, buttery and citric in the aroma. Very much like want a raw ale should smell like from the hops, malt and yeast.

Creamy pancake like lace that clings to the glass very well, mild chill haze goes a way but not totally after the sunset orange amber hued brew warms up.

Smooth with a flowing crispness, moderate body and a full rush of carbonation. Citric and almost cidery on top with a growing under belly of musty buttery diacetyl. Maltiness is sweet but there is enough hop bitterness to counter act and balance. Fruity with odd pear and apple flavours. Bit of earthy character from the yeast and hops with a fairly clean and dry grainy finish.

An easy drinking ale to say the least, quick jabs of malt, hops and yeast by-products keep the palate in check. I’d definitely gauge this as a lunch time brew or something to have over a long session. Needless to say it is worth a try.

This stuff came in a big clear 660 ml bottle, but I was surprised at the low alcohol content. Out of the bottle, it looks and smells like a dirty 40 oz. of cheap malt liquor, although it is slightly darker. Once poured, it smelled strongly of fruit, particularly pineapple. I'm really serious. Drinkable, but not very good at all.
