Fills a Dogfish Head Fish-eye pint with clear, deep copper (SRM 18-19), while a half-inch, beige froth quickly settles to leave rings of lace.

The malt is strong and pronounced with toasted notes while hops are subdued. Lots of caramelized sugar, but otherwise lacking complexity.

Balanced between light bitterness and sweetness. Some burnt sugar supports wheat bread and tar flavors. The finish is modest and lingering. Warmth brings out cashews and butter.

A medium body with light carbonation and no alcohol. Somewhat dry with a cotton texture.

While rather simple, this is a beer to sit back and enjoy while watching a ballgame with bar food.

Pours caramelish amber wit a dirty cream colored head. Aroma is kinda ashy and earthy, caramel,coffee cake, and nutty. Toffee, earthy, caramel dominate the flavor. Maybe a touch of roast thrown in. A medium bodied, semi active mouthfeel. Overall, solid beer here. Would drink again.

My rating: 3.40
