A: Pours a clear amber with a fizzy, quickly dissipating white head.
S: Gentle aromas of bready malt, toffee, and cream are just barely detectable on the nose. Pretty much exactly what one would expect out of a beer of this style. Smells a bit generic to me.
T: Malty and rich on the palate with notes of fresh bread, toffee, roasted nuts, cream, and minerals. The finish is bready and lightly sweet with notes of toffee, nuts, and cream.
M: Medim bodied, silky, and smooth with gentle, unobtrusive carbonation. Very drinkable.
O: This is a smooth beer that would pair well with food, but it is not all that memorable on its own. It's one of those beers that pretty much does all that you would expect it to and nothing more.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Deep true copper to orange amber body. Fairly clear, with virtually no carbonation present. Head is a fluffy light tan consistency and about three fingers tall.
Very light toasted grains, and small caramel presence on the nose. Not much going on but pretty much what an amber should be but seems very quiet on the aroma front.
Palate matches much of the nose but also it's buried flavor. Quite a watery palate and a matching almost faint taffy watery candy sticky quality. Small toast and grains with also faint caramel adding in the mix. Slightly soapy tasting as well.
Overall it's a session amber, and one without much flavor, but it doesn't bring much else to the table other than it's easy drinking and refreshing. No major complaints but nothing too crazy either, sort of a slightly better Fat Tire vein here.
