I've tried to like this beer on many occasions, but I just can't. It was actually hard for me to finish my last one, and I'm not one to like the idea of struggling to finish ANY beer. It's just way too malty and soapy for my tastes. A shame, too, because I happen to like a lot of other New Belgium styles.

Brilliant deep gold with a thin white head. Splotchy lace.

Sweet light caramel and biscuity malty goodness. A little bit earthy

Lots of biscuit, some sweet caramel, a touch of tang, very light bitterness and a little lingering earthiness. Goes down very easy.

On the lighter side of medium with medium carbonation.

Pretty complex for how easy it goes down. The large amount of sweet biscuit flavors could throw someone off, but I could drink a few of these if the mood struck me.
