Bottle… Crystal clear amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head… gone in a flash. Toffee and caramel aroma with a note of singed sugar. Medium to full-bodied with an almost chewy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Well-balanced. Nice, malty caramelized flavors. Crisp, lightly sweet finish.

Wow this is just not right. Bizarre and stank aroma leads to a taste that is overly malty and funky. Just not riight. skip it if you can.
