The beer pours golden in color with over an inch of pure white head that leaves light lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet grain, honey, tangy, a bit metallic, with an odor approximating grassy hops. The taste follows the aromas, but is a bit cleaner and more balanced than the aroma. The beer drinks easy with quite with a strong carbonation, particularly for a malt liquor. In quite the change for a malt liquor, this one is as good out of a glass as it is out of the bottle. Pretty darn good as malt liquors go, but I swear the plastic leaves a note in the aftertaste.
