Pours a deep golden color with plenty of white chunky head that takes a while to fade. Smells of yeast and a little copper? The taste is very sweet and for XXXX, very good. There's a tiny bit of that good ole XXXX copper flavor on the back end, but it's barely noticeable. There isn't any discernable bitterness. The mouthfeel is very heavy and creamy, not bad at all. Overall, it's a very drinkable beer. I was very surprised. This is probably the only beer from Castlemaine Perkins that I can actually finish.
