Tap at Brouwerís Cafe, Seattle - 08/11/12.
Slightly obscured reddish brown with a big off white head - this looks the bollocks (shame it didnít continue that way!!!).
Nose comprises caramel malts, hops, pine, sugar, hints of strawberry licqeur.
Tastes of sweet caramel malt, strawberry, pine, sugary sugary sugary.
Medium body with soft carbonation leading to a sweet over sugared finish.
