Appearance - pours a gorgeous clear deep copper/light auburn colour. very nice off-white head with a lot of volume and good lasting effect. there is some nice lacing occurring along with some good carbonations.

Smell - banana, malts, sweetness, citrus and some fine hops, very dynamic yet good smelling beer.

Taste - very clean and fresh tasting beer. this beer offers the malts upfront with some banana and citrus taste. the hops finish the beer off with some slight bitterness but nothing lasting.

Mouthfeel - add volume brings a little more bitterness out, but for the most part the beer remains the same.

Overall - such a fine tasting beer upset I only have one to taste. would love to sit back and have a few good sessions with this beer.

This beer poured a nice amber color with a good tanish head. The aroma was a nice bouquet of sweet malts. Very enjoyable. The taste is a pleasant hit of malty goodness with a bit of hops but not overpowering. There are also some spices in this one that work well. This medium bodied beer is very pleasant and drinkable in my opinion.
