look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Copper colored with frothy tan head.

S- Carmel malt & Vanilla creme. Pretty decent nose but nothing overwhelming.

T- Creamy carmel & vanilla similar to the nose. Toasted bread, cinnamon and some mild hops that add to the balance. Looking forward what this will do as it warms up a bit.

M- This is where the beer really shines. Creamy & smooth beer that is a good one to swish around.

O- Very tasty beer at a very reasonable price. Anderson Valley continues to produce solid products. Highly recommend giving it a try.
