A: Caramel with a nice consistent haze, almost no carbonation, 3 fingers of sea foam caramel tinged white head. Frost on a window for lacing.


S: Sweet malty cereal quality, banana candy, not a lot more than this so far. Perhaps a hint of orange candy or lollipop.


T: A mean sweet and bitter balance, first sweet, then bitter on the palate. The same cereal candy quality comes in, a hint of orange lollipop, then a grapefruit pith like finish.


M: Medium balanced body, little fine carbonation. Smooth, but resinous coating is left on the back of the tongue.


O: Really nice brew, found in Kunming and drank here January 20th, 2014. Will let it warm a little and see how it does with Burger King.

Poured a slightly cloudy, golden orange. Full head, fairly persistaent head, flass to a persistent collar.
Slightly tropical, spicey aroma, possible hints of toffee as it warms to temp.
Full, smooth, bitterness from start to finish. Slightly hop forward, but mostly well balanced. Med to Med Lt body. Good , clean finish.
Would recommend, and would buy again.
