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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
