A: The pour from bottle to pint glass is a clear, amber color with a fluffy off-white foam. S: Caramel, sweet malt, and a slight bit of roasted malt. Not all that much going on in the nose. T: This is a very sweet beer. Too sweet for my taste. The flavor is very caramelly, with a fair amount of malt flavor coming through as well. Little to no hops, unfortunately, as this beer could really use it. M: The beer doesnt feel too terrible on the tongue. A light-medium body and moderate carbonation. D: The beer itself is not terrible. It is a bit too sweet for me, but other than that, its not awful. The flavors that are there arent bad, its just not necessarily my cup of tea.

Draft at the downtown brewpub. Light medium malt aroma. Reddish amber color with a creamy off-white head. It laced a bit. Medium body; moderate carbonation. Sweet dark fruits, but not too dark, and some carame/toffee malt. Not much bitter. Arguably a very flavorful amber. Finish is not quite dry, and again, not much bitter.
