The beer is golden yellow in colour and pour with a finger of head and good lacing on the glass. The grains and sweet malt dominate the aroma. The taste is quite sweet with the grains and malts, once again, playing the main role a strong taste of alcohol follows.
Overall, not a good beer, more of an "it'll get you drunk" type of beer. If that is what your looking for, than Hayward's 5000 is a excellent choice.
