look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Very golden amber color with a small to medium head that doesn't dissipate too quickly. Visible carbonation.

Smell: caramel malts, sweet, grainy and somewhat hoppy smell.

Taste: Sweet toffee/caramel taste. Somewhat bitter aftertaste with a sweetness that is balanced with it. Medium bodied and a crisp beer.

Overall: A nice change of pace from my IPAs I typically drink. A sweet beer that is enjoyable every once in a while. New Belgium does a good job with their brews and this is another one I would recommend to try.
