Golden brown with a small-sized beige head. Nice dark caramel nose. Hint of nuts, tinned fruits and leafy hops. Chalky texture. Light to medium full. Soft caramelly malt flavor, with toasted and nutty tones. A mild tart berry-like fruitiness underneath. Mildly hopped. Sourish, light astringent malt finish. A bit strange, but drinks very good.
