A - Deep and clear ruby hued beer with a collar of light tan foam. No real head to speak of, but there is a little bit of lace.

S - Caramel, malt, and some butterscotch. Smells like a Worther's Original candy.

T - Super-sweet malt bomb with almost no hop bitterness at first. Some grassy hops pop up at the end. Slight copper penny note at the end.

M - Initially really sweet and malty, but saves itself from sugary hell by coming up with a grassy, slightly lemony, dry finish.

O - Not terribly interesting. A little to sweet, but that could make it a great gateway beer for people who aren't into craft brews.
