This is one of my favorites, it's almost like drinking liquid bread. A nice, yeasty and hoppy taste, it grabs the tongue and does not let go. Perfect pairing with a hamburger, fries, or a salty snack. Shares a lot of taste with Sunshine Pils, a heavy beer that isn't meant to be be chugged or drunk with speed. Take your time, enjoy the beer, let it breath, and take in the flavor.

Look is a clear amber with a great looking 2 finger head with okay retention. Smell is some savory roasted amber tones, notes of chocolate and toffee. Little piney hops in there, too. Taste follows with bread, crackers, caramel, toffee, and crisp grain. Hops are almost nonexistant.

Cheers to NB.
