Aroma is full of grain and some corriander. Taste is grainy malts with some yeast, pear and herbal flavors. Overall, I am not that impressed with this.

750 ML Bottle. Decent sweet citrus on the nose along with some spice. Golden body with good white head and livly carbinated bubble action in the glass. Flaor has some citrus but the malt is somewhat more dominate along with the spices. A filling brew time for a nap.

Thanks Ma...a great birthday gift surprise .. lots of dusty metallic honey flavours ... big crazy white foamy cant dance head ...tons of lacing .. golden orange like a bruised orange on a autumn day ... very easy to drink but has a metallic aftertaste that really detracts from the enjoyment of this one .. Thanks for the update Big Ben!

Bottle from Mar. Guess I had to come to Texas to get this (available at home). Pours with a white head that fades over a clear golden colored body. Okay lacing. Banana esters and peanuts on the nosee. Taste is peanut shells, spices, and honey. A bit fizzy.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2008
750 mL bottle. Pours gold with huge sticky whitish head. The aroma is quite spicy (coriander, cardamom, white pepper) with some honeyish malt notes and plenty of yeastiness. The flavor is rather peppery at first, then it mellows into a soft sweetness with yeasty bread notes. Lemon zest qualities bounce around. Grainy sweet finish.
