Pours a dark, slightly cloudy amber colour. The head is thin and tan, and fades away quickly. No carbonation visible in the murky depths.
First sip: Strong malts and toffee, followed by a mild citrus and fruit sourness. Very mild hops after-taste that fades away quickly. Mild carbonation tingle on the tongue. Medium mouth-feel.
It's odd to read "Vintage Reserve" applied to beer; it's usually a wine Thing. This is quite a nice brew. The fruity sourness is different, but pleasant. This is nice but not nice enough to drink a lot of in a session. On the other hand, I would never say "No" if someone offered it to me.
The beer burp is nice, too.
