A- Quite a dark amber color. good head and lacing. Cloudy with sediment that reminds me of some quads I have had before.

S- good solid notes of caramel and breadiness. A hint of spice as if from the hops.

T- That is just delightful. Sweet bready caramel up front with a hoppy bitter in the finish.

M- All is right with this one. Perfect balance of smoothness and carbonation. Just right.

O- This is a great amber that will be gracing my fridge for years to come.
