From old tasting notes. Cloudy golden color. Huge whipped cream white head. Tart, fruity malt nose is sharp and ascerbic. Bittersweet fruity malt flavor that becomes sharp and potent. Lots of flavor, lots of body, lots of oomph! Long malty finish. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

UPDATED: APR 8, 2007 Pours with a frothy white head. Honey colored and murky. Aroma is bready(yeasty) with caramel and brown sugar. I don’t pick up much of the hops or spices that the previous rater mentions. Flavor is sweet almost syrupy. Some alcohol does show up on the finish to moderate the sweetness. ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 27, 2003
hazy amber bronze, big off white head that held up well and left a sheet of dense lace.
yeast, citrus and coriander spiced aroma.
palate is thin but pleasantly carbonated so as to be refeshing.
sweet start followed by a tangy tart middle , finish is full of hops and a lingering dry alcohol note.
