Pours a dark amber. Looks more viscous from an amber ale than I'd expect which I do like. Smells of the sweet, caramel malt and the taste maches. I'd say this one veers just too far off the sweet deep end for me. Medium bodied with some syrupy creaminess to it. I think this beer is a perfectly solid amber and it deserves its widespread popularity but, for me, I am not a huge fan of it as I find it to be just a little too sweet for my tastes. Once a year I can have a bottle of this and it will hit the spot, but once that bottle goes down I need about a years off from it before I can enjoy another.
