Our Take

It is characterized by a smooth mouthfeel and a fruity, mellow flavor. We recommend drinking it straight, tossed up, or on the rocks to soak up the richness and aftertaste of the malt while sipping it slowly, or casually with a splash of water or a highball to feel the gorgeousness of the malt.
