473ml can (Beertopia, Omaha) - thanks Frank!
Sweet caramelly aroma, fruity, some spicy eastern food. Full palate, slickish, but biting carbonation cuts through that. Very sweet caramelly taste, some pungent hops. Finish tingly from carbonation and bitter hops. Slips down very easily compared to previous three messes.
