A: clear crimson color. Thin head with some lacing.

S: lots of sweet caramel malt. Very aromatous.

T: Mostly breads, biscuit and sweet malts. A little plain. Lacks the usual bad amber aftertaste.

M: moderate carbonation and light to medium body.

Overall: very smooth, refreshing and benign beer. Easy to drink but nothing overall special.

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Body is a bright amber color, topped by a smallish creamy white head that quickly subsides, leaving some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet pale malt with a hint of adjunct, some sweet notes of biscuit and toffee, and just a hint of fruity hops.
Palate is malt-forward, with a touch of fruity hops of front. Notes of biscuit and mild fruit (a hint of apple) come through mid-palate. Finish is dry and has a slightly chalky quality to it. Body is slightly fizzy, but not overly so. This is decent, but I really don't understand its mass popularity.

Appearance- light amber, very clear.
Smell- you have a nice balance and very light smell of hops and malt.
Taste and Mouthfeel go hand in hand. This beer comes and goes so smoothly. This is a very fridge worthy beer. This brew sits very nicely and is a " who wants one' beer. Overall this beer is a great beer, just good tasting. well done.
