3.6/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

All I taste in this beer is caramel, caramel, caramel. I even looked up its ingrediants to see if it was brewed with caramel, but no luck. Regardless, it is a good beer, and surprisingly refined for such a humble brand.

It poured a reddish, brown, with just a slight head. The foam disappated quickly as the beer warmed. The taste was noticibly sweet, and as I mentioned before.. loads of caramel!

After this beer, I bought a special caramel brew just for comparison, and could barely notice a difference. A good beer all and all though.
