Appearance- Amber/copper in color with some visibility. Pours about a one finger head which rapidly dissipates.

Aroma- Muted aroma but sweet caramel is definitely noticeable.

Taste- Lots of toasted caramel sweetness up front and in the finish The finish has a very tiny presence of peated/smoke but barely any (if any actually). Little bit of a herbal/spice hop presence towards the end too.

Feel- Very light up front, but richer and more of a medium body in the finish.

Overall- This is a ok/good beer that has some nice toasted caramel malt flavors but a little too light at times. Definitely grows on you as warms up, so serving at at least 45 degrees would probably be best. Worth the try and maybe worth going for again.
