Held up to the light, appears a nice clear amber. Small head fully diminishes leaving no notable lacings. Nice maltiness, and I smell a bit of coffee, too. Mildly bitter start, finishes a bit dry. Nice brew overall.

vivid orange copper colour when poured with nice head although quickly dissapates. the smell is of more of a bitter but with a few surprises. taste is sweet and slightly hopped, nice bitterness which carries through the drink into the aftertaste which lingers but is not off putting. nothing to rave about but nice especially on this hot summers day.
