Mild bitterness upfront is followed by a smooth sweet malt body and finish with the 6.5% ABV lurking in the shadows.

There is so much to like about this as a beer, to my mind. Banging amount of floral up front, crashing amount of sweet malt to carry it, and a finish that is hinting to dry but is quite a soft landing. Lovely linger and overall a bit lovely, Brilliant dark chestnut with a lovely head and great lacing. A beer to write poetry by GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2015
On tap. Pours a hazy dark red with fluffy tan head. Earthy hops and bready malts in the aroma. Slight caramel notes. Taste is of toasted malts, a slight sour tang in the sides of the mouth and a rounded bitterness. Bitterness lingers in the finish along with a mild sweetness. Somewhat sticky mouthfeel. beer-yum (1706) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 3, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2017 Restrained citrus floral aroma in a copper brown pour. The rich full body is followed by a nice bitter finish that leaves one wanting another. A very tasty brew and one that bodes well for the future of this brewstress. k0mpsa (2964) - Tuusula, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
