Honey and burnt caramel on the nose with some soft fruit. Brownish amber color, medium soapy head. Brown sugar and caramel, some nutmeg, great bitter balance. Medium carbonation, lighter medium body, fruity smooth finish. All around excellent beer, understated complexity of flavors and a well-balanced structure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Copper color with white head. Not much in the aroma department-- some faint maltiness and underlying bitterness. Flavor is mild caramel malt with some crisp hop bitterness in the finish. A bit watery throughout. Not bad at all, very drinkable, but not a knockout.

Rating from 3/06. On tap @ DD. Amber color. Caramel, toffee aroma. Taste is caramelly, mild earthy hops, hops mostly for bittering. Not too bad for what it is, a light amber lager.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a flat-but-clear orange-amber colored beverage with a small, creamy, white head that was mostly diminishing but that left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a light, sweet and fruity fragrance to it. There were notes of caramel with a very light floral hop backdrop. The body was medium with a soft carbonation and a creamy, smooth texture. The flavor started out sweet and stayed that way through the medium-long finish. There was even a slight alcohol warmth in the chest.
