Large off white head quickly dies above a clear deep amber colored beer.

The aroma is on the lighter side with light grain malts that are caramel and lightly roasted.

Toffee to roasted caramel malt taste that has a light grain aspect to it.

A slightly dryish aftertaste with a little bit of the tastes of this beer remaining with it on this medium bodied beer.

Not a remarkable tasting beer other than the fact that it is a really drinkable beer, smooth, and easy on the palette.
