Very hazy deep amber beer, good fluffy pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth but with good minerally carbonation on the back end. Sweet lactose malt and sweet cooling spices. Just a pinch of something hotter. Smooth finish. Quite a mellow spiced beer.

Great aroma, sweet spice and lots of malt , the actual flavour is a bit disappointing, and rather artificial .
