Pours clear copper in my plastic glass from the hotel room. Oh well. Still, half finger head has nice retention and sticky to the side of the glass, looks nice.
Smell of citrusy and floral hops, some grains, faint caramel.
Taste: biscuity malts, bread crust, a short flash of fruitiness (peach, apple, some sweet citrus) and then some bitter green hops balanced with caramel malts till the end.
Light bodied, tho a tiny bit buttery, medium carbonation.
Read some nice stuff about Alchemy Ale, true, but most of the time it gets trashed in reviews. I didn't find it to be bad, but not even close to impressive.
