Pours well, it is an almost perfect honey color. Not much head, not highly carbonated, which is nice - this helps with the mouthfeel. The aroma is sweet and has strong notes of the saffron used to spice it. It tastes sweet at first but fades to a spiciness that finishes smoothly. Good overall flavor - sweet and spicy. Very malty.
