A well balanced beer with a hop forward offset by an equal amount of malt and adequate carbonation to keep it from being syrupy. Nutty, earthy flavors with a clean finish.
Easily quaffable with its low ABV - and solid representative of the style.

Pours a clear brown with an off-white head.

Smells of hazelnut, cream, a little butterscotch.

Taste is subtle, similar to the nose, is nutty, hazelnut I pick up the most, with notes of cream and toffee, fairly sweet to start. Bitterness takes on a very astringent tone for the aftertaste and overpowers the end. For 5% ABV the alcohol is poorly hidden, and shows up in full force as it goes down.

Medium body, smooth feel, leaves clean.

Dark tan colour. Beautiful tan Lacey head. Sweet coffee, toffee nutty nose. Walnut, pecan, toffee flavours. Light body. Gets the back of the tounge. Nice beer!
