Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, light, orange-amber coloring with steady carbonation action throughout and a thin, low profile, filmy white head. Aromas of caramel, candy sweetness, and a very light hint of toasted character. Flavors are bitter roast and cloying sweet forward, with a sugary caramel lead. Jumbled palate, and the carbonation only adds to the mess. Sharp and light in mouth, with a tangy, sugary sweet aftertaste. The finish is light and fairly clean, but also a bit limp. Lackluster beer, but drinkable if devoid of other options.

Very little head (<1 finger), and looks not-so lively, yet there is plenty of carbonation visible in the lighter than expected amber brew. Fairly clear bordering on transparent. Almost a sickly color.

Strong whiff of caramel malts and some Belgian-style yeast; overall mild scent.

Very sweet! Belgian candi dominates; the caramel malt is more of a background flavor. There's a slight bright but unidentified hoppiness.

Very light mouthfeel; a little bit of sting; very nice cloying (but not oily) residue. Thin enough to drink quickly, if that's your thing; no aftertaste.

This beer was super underwhelming...until the first taste. It's certainly a malt-forward beer, but it's well-balanced for the style, sweet, and extremely drinkable. I'm not going out of my way to get it, but I definitely wouldn't hesitate to order it at a pub.

No bottle date.
