Poured from 750ml bottle into tulip glass. Pours bcopper color, sparkling clarity, and good foam retention throughout. Deep toasty/caramelly malt balanced by spicy/fruity hop flavors accented by fruit esters resulting. The aroma is subtle and reflects the flavor with malt, hop and fruit (ester)/fermentation characteristics. Smooth, medium-bodied. There were some harsh or astringent sensations with the finish.
