Just found an old rating I had for this circa Sept 2008: Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of sweet toasty grainy caramel malts and a touch of nice noble hoppiness. Body starts with good fullness and rich sweet toasty Munich malt with a good balance of bittering hops before a crisp bittersweet finish. Very true to style and well made.

Not a big fan of this style, but this one deserves its just due as a beer I wouldn’t mind having more than one of in a given sitting.
