Pours a cloudy deep copper/ orange with a nice off white head. Spicy yeasty aroma with some fruity esters and lightly sweet caramel malts. Lightly toasty flavor, some nuttiness, more fruit and an earthy hoppy flavor as well. A bit too sweet in the middle and almost became cloying. Other than that, this was ok.
