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

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Deep orange/amber body. Medium white head. Nice, but minimal lacing. Medium chunky collar.

Smell - Very nutty. More dominant than anything else. Toasty and nutty malts.

Taste - Again, nutty. The toasted malts have a little more dimension than the nose, but still it's nutty and toasty. Sweet caramel. Some hops in the finish, but minimal.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Kinda sweet. Surprising that this is so popular considering how malty and sweet it is.

Overall - I expected this to be bland, but it isn't. It has flavor, it's just one flavor the whole time.
