Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma was mainly, caramel, some nutty character and fruity hops. The flavor opens with light toasted malts, caramel and fruit. A slight cardboard note, mild bitterness soon follows. This is just ok. Medium bodied, smooth and not to be revisited.
