11.2oz bottle - Color is of golden dark honey and the head is super tall, mega froth from the pour, 11.2 seemed more like 16, the head is frothy foam of off-white color but deeper in color at the bottm of a two finger high head. Head is smooth like whipped cream with some large divets.
Smell is mostly malt like caramel and toffee with a light alcohol warmth hint and citrus fruits.
Taste is smooth and yummy, amazingly sweet and malty with some toffee and rum-like capabilties in warmth, slight spicy citrus. Feel is all sweet and smooth with incredible silkyness and a warming from the alcohol thats like a brandy or rum. Surprising kick for 8%, pleasantly smooth character.

Old Review
Had this on tap at the Brick Store Pub in ATL. Served up in its traditional, brewery glassware with stand. Very cool. Its amazing when people see a beer presented this way, everyone seems to take notice and wonder what it is. As soon as mine hit the table, the table next to me ordered a few of them.

A: Besides the really kick ass glassware we have the actual beer itself. Served with a really nice half finger or so of pristine white head resting on top of the light amber (more orange than brown) body. That head was resilient as all hell. It made it almost all the way down to the bulb at the bottom of the glass. Lace was a bit to be desired but can't have it all. Beer had a pretty clear appearance with no debris in the glass. It really is a nice presentation.

S: Smell was a bit to be desired. Has a decent bready malt character. Maybe a touch of tropical fruits looming in the background in the form of some banana and may a touch of citrus from the hops. Little bit of sugared presence as well. Everything is just a bit light and subdued. Still nice.

T: Taste is a bit better. That bready malt presence comes out a bit more. Has a nice flavor to it. The banana that you get in the nose is just barely there but it plays a nice role. Really earthy quality here with some grains and a touch of hay. The hops are little medicinal along with a little bit of citrus and earth. Very nice.

M: Medium bodied brew with a good amount of carbonation keeps this beer very crisp and absolutely refreshing. I was a little taken aback to see it sits at 8% because I got zero hint of alcohol in here. The brew has just a touch of dryness to it in the finish. Aftertaste is mostly just a touch of bready malts.

D: Very easy drinker. I was expecting this to be a bit of a challenge to tackle for some reason, but it goes down very easily. Sits nice and light. Tastes are good and the beer is very refreshing. I could have easily had another, but I had already had enough by this point. Very enjoyable brew with a beautiful presentation. Worth exploring again in the future in my opinion.
