Light copper amber colour, 1.5 fingers of off white head, good lace on the glass. Smell is of malty caramel, quite fruity, biscuity, some floral/grassy hops, bit of earth with more fruit. Taste is malty and full of caramel and toffee, moderate sweetness and mildly bitter, aplle and fruit here again, clean biscuity finish. Medium carbonation, lightly creamy, smooth medium body. Solid and pretty easy drinking, a bit one dimensional but still very tasty, certainly simple but effective.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on February 17, 2013.

It took me awhile to get around to reviewing this one that has managed to push its way into the mainstream of everyday beer drinkers. The pour is a slightly cloudy amber orange-copper with a moderate head.

The aroma is incredibly sweet with an overwhelming toffee, butter, malts, and sugar note The hops play second fiddle at least on the nose.

The body is creamy and medium.

The taste is also abundantly sweet upfront with an astringent bitterness roaring up behind but then settling in to balance things off. No wonder this is so popular.
