A - Pale honey, slightly murky, creamy. Small head, some lace.

S - Not much of anything. Some light malt smell gets to me.

T - Creamy and hot. Nice malt, a little alcohol hot at the end.

M - Creamy, the sweet and hot pull it off somewhat to get some sort of balance.

D - Deceptively drinkable.

Tap @ Hamilton's. Poured murky auburn with a thick, rocky off-white head. Hearty wheat and malt aroma, slightly acrid, with apricot and citrus. Taste was very nice; tangy-sweet beer with the tartness taking the upper hand. Malty body which seemed to battle the wheat flavors, but struck a strange balance. Sweeter lemon and citrus flavors in the finish, along with a sticky simple-syrup sweetness. Got to say, it has its rough edges at times, but this was pretty good.
