1 PINT 6 FLUID OUNCE bottle
Served in a nonic pint glass

L - It is dark brown with amber highlights. It is topped with one third of a glass of mocha head that leaves nice lacing rings around the glass. The head lasts quite a while.

S - There is a good balance of citrus and roasted malt.

T - The taste is a little more focused on the citrus. The roasted malt comes through, barely.

F - Medium to full

O - It is good. I liked the initial taste more than the last. The grapefruit bitterness builds over the course of the beer, virtually eliminating any traces of the mild roasted malt.
