Cloudy gold with a light head cover and no lace. Taste starts with caramel and light malt, adding spices, especially coriander and cloves, as it moves to a fizzy, lightly bittered, finish. As the finish dissipates, there is a mis-step: the bitter gives way to a sour aftertaste. It nearly works. There are better ones out there.
