Den inleder med en skön arom med toner av grape och mangi. Smaken följer upp aromen på ett behagligt sätt med tillägg av en svag och söt ton malt. Kroppen är dessvärre lite tunn men balansen är i alla fall behaglig. Slutsats: en besk och bra öl, helt enkelt. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - NOV 19, 2012

Has some light sweet malt and roast scents and flavors. It is a decent beer for the style I typically don't care for.
