Pours an unusually clear reddish amber color. Has a thin white had that dissipates quickly, leaving a small ring that stays throughout.
Has a very faint aroma. Primarily smells of sweet malts and hops, with a little bit of spiciness, and a slight hint of honey.
Has a very sweet, bready flavor, with hints of malts and caramel. The finish has just the slightest bit of spice to it, and a touch of hoppy bitterness that lingers on the palate.
Light medium in body. It could have used a little more carbonation; as it stands, it felt a little flat. But other than that it was very smooth and left just the right amount of dryness on the tongue.
For a beer that feels as light as this does, it's surprisingly heavy. About half-way through pint number two you really start to feel it. Tastes good and goes down smooth, just don't try to drink it all night long.
