This ale has not a very strong smell. It has a root beer kind of malty taste with bitterness. Not a very strong nose. it feels soapy and does not have a big head. It is not a bad ale but not a great one too. If you like a less flavorful lighter ale with the bitterness go for it.

Probably will go with less spicy appetizers.
