The nose is inviting and light, with notes of honey, malt, and sweetness. The palate is quite rough, as the welcomed sweetness is overwhelmed by the harsh warmth of alcohol. Surprising, given the low ABV. The finish is short, warming, and spicy. Overall, a rather mediocre expression, which is understandable, given its low price point.
