3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour into shaker glass. Aroma is biscuit and cracker with a hint of brown sugar and raisin/dark fruit. Appearance is clear, medium brown with nice sparkle, 1/2 finger-width off-white head with poor retention and no lacing. Taste is biscuit with mild fruit. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, average to soft carbonation, and mix of biscuity and bitter finish. Overall, not terribly complex and fairly mild but good enough and highly sessionable.

It's New Belgium's signature. What can I say. It's a pleasing amber ale that needs to be served ice cold and will keep you happy.
