Subdued and fine carbo. Medium body. Lovely soft mouthfeel. Excellent for the style, which I havenít had in a while, been so driven to IPAs. Extra points for demanding that I look at the date code on the bottom.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown color with a smallish light tan head on it. Nose is a tad toasty, but I get mostly caramel coming off it. Taste is pretty sweet to me, coming almost close to a toasty syrup. Ok, but not really my bag.
