Er, candy. This is very candyish, cloying, bubblegum, there is just not a lot of nuance here. Amber colour. Not my thing at all.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of malt and a bit of candy. Coppery amber color with virtually no head. Starts with a slightly smoky malt which goes to malt which stays with malt. A bit of hop shows up, keeping it palatable. Good. Not a hophead ale, but good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy deep amber with minimal head. Sweet caramelly aroma, supplemented by sugar cane. The flavor has what the aroma suggests, plus a bit of spiciness so it’s not unbearably sweet. Minimal bitterness, but quite full bodied. Evokes Fuller’s.

12oz bottle-pours a disappearing off white head and amber color. Aroma is medium malt-some light caramel, grain, faint spice-hops. Taste is medium malt-some light caramel, grain, equal flat/spice-hops. Nice for my taste a bit over hopped if I was rating to style. OK carbonation.
