Pours a decent head (about a finger and a half) considering the alcohol percentage. Body is fairly opaque and is orange to amber. Smells lightly of hops, plus some alcohol and malt. Flavor starts off really sweet, then finishes with hoppy notes and a bit of a wine-like quality. Definitely not as hoppy as I was expecting, but that's OK here; the flavors work together pretty well. It seems really smooth, especially given the amount of alcohol in it (there's definitely a nice warming note). Overall, it's not something I'd be likely to get again soon, especially given the price, but it's still decently tasty (though it verges on being too sweet at times).
