A: medium brown; 1 finger off white head that receded quickly to a thin ring; no lacing;

S: caramel malt; slightly sweet;

T: caramel, roasted grain; a little too sweet for may taste;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: my recollection of this beer from previous tastings is that it had more depth of flavor and less sweetness;
