Pours with an off-white head that quickly disperses. Color is a light amber/copper. Aromas of light caramel and toast. Flavors are mild malts and a bit of sweetness that finishes quickly with clean hop acidity. Fairly light-bodied with a crisp mouthfeel and good carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The nose is grainy and sweet with herbal and earthy hop. Caramel, burnt brown sugar and cereal grains are prominently featured, while hints of molasses and white chocolate appear nown and again. Earthy hops linger in the finish. Itís rather creamy in spite of the substantial bitter streak running through it. This is a brew that goes down quite easily. While itís not boozy at all, it drinks like a big beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep coppery red in hue. Toffee and roast malts on the nose. Smooth caramel which masterfully avoids copper notes, a dash of savoury smokiness, woody qualities to it aswell. Quite sweet and silky but with a smooth dryness to it that creates the perfect balance.
