12oz bottle served in SA perfect pint glass.

pours a rich, clear golden yellow with two fingers of head, good retention and lacing. accidentally poured some on the floor while examining the latter. super smooth beer reviewer here.

nose is fairly subdued, maybe because i'm used to imperial stouts and quads. there are some muted hoppy characters, maybe a touch of lemon. flavor likewise offers muted hoppy notes coupled with some maltiness, lemon and maybe honey in there, plus the alcohol. definitely opens up as it warms, flavors become more pronouced. hmm... not bad... medium-heavy on the palate, moderate to highly carbed. not my personal style perference but i could be talked into another.

Poured from the bottle into a Pilsner style glass.

A very good creamy to foamy type head with some retention, off white, sits on a cloudy looking unfiltered lemon yellow body. Some cola like bubbles sticking to the side of the glass, and some rising carbonation. Looks ok.

Faint apple on the nose, some slight bready malts, kind of mushy, some faint crispness, not too bad.

Nice mix of thick malt, some faint dough on the palate. Crisp body is a bit lost and there's a bit of noticeable residual sugar and alcohol. A bit noticeably boozy and syrupy.

Overall it's just above average just slightly, not really gravitating to this one very much.
