This was my entry into craft beer years ago. This was my favorite beer for awhile. Although I've had better since. This beer has a solid taste,smell, and it's a solid medium body. The taste that always pops out is caramel, with some oak tasting notes. Some Toffee notes as well.
Appearance light cooper appearance. Some people call this beer watered down. I think it can be at times, it all depends which batch you get. New Belgium has some average beers out there, but their staple is always solid.
Serving type: bottle

3.54/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Serving: On tap, shaker pint
Served: 11 April 2014
Appearance: Brownish red with a cream colored white head. Head seemed pretty intense, but the bartender poured it off the beer when he was pouring it. Left some lacing.
Smell: Soft assertion of chewy caramel.
Taste: Some caramel maltiness with a slightly bitter finish. No hop presence other than the hint of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light with lively carbonation. A very refreshing brew.
Overall: An unimposing beer than is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Tastes like a toned-back Maerzen, which is itself not an imposing style. I would have liked to see a fuller assertion of the malts, with slightly more caramel/molasses notes. Not a bad beer, but probably not one I would buy for personal consumption at home.
Serving type: on-tap
