look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a light copper-amber color. Very small white head with poor retention. No lacing. Aroma is very malt-forward. Sweet caramel. An unexpected amount of fruitiness (easy there, no I didn't read the label right away). Bready malts, and a bit of spice as well. The taste features, sweet, very lightly roasted malts, led by caramel. A good amount of bread malts as well, and some grain. A little bit of bitterness. Some very lightly roasted nuts that were a very nice addition to the caramel. Very very well balanced, with a good deal of sweetness that doesn't go overboard. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. A bit sticky, with makes it a little harder to gulp down. Overall this one was a pleasant surprise, after having a few letdowns from Great Divide.

Pours copper with a small lasting head.
Nose shows rye bready, sultanas, caramel, bready malt and hints of spicy cedar.
Creamy, nutty flavours with some bready malt too. Quite sweet.
