Amber colored pour with a small off-white head. Nose is toffee, toast, and bread. Fairly sweet with a mild hop character, mostly spicy and floral. A very light roast in there. The flavor is mostly just sweet toffee, toasted bread, and some caramel. There’s a hint of roast, some spice, floral hops, and a very subtle bitterness.
