Going to rate this better than average, but with the caveat that I didn't care for it. There is a hop bitterness that cuts through the sweetness that I am not able to stand.

Beautiful amber.Very thick white head. Hoppy smell, sweet and spicy. Taste is sweet with hops and malt balanced very well. Strong: 9.9%abv. It is a very good beer from a mix n match sampler.
