look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Crystal-clear copper-colored body with a massive summit of coarse, persistent off-white foam. Sticky Belgian-like lacing adorns the glass walls. The carbonation is sparse and minute, drifting lazily to the surface.
Aroma: Features caramel and toasted dark bread aromas, as well as some very mild herbal hops.
Taste: Opens with toasted malt and some nutty flavors, as the taste progresses, it takes on a mineral characteristic, as well as some charred flavors. Finishes with the burnt flavors, and some fairly earthy hops, which seem to linger on and on well past the end of the taste.
Mouth feel: Smooth, fairly full, with a slight sting of carbonation, and a sensation of hard water.
Drinkability/notes: Not bad really, its not likely to be a favorite of mine, but would do in a pinch.
Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.
Pours a copper color with a half finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grainy, minerally, not much by way of hop or sweet malt aromas.
This beer has a strong crystal malt sweetness at first, with a very flat finish. Not much lingering flavor, and not much hop flavor comes through. There is nothing bad about this per se, it is just very basic and one dimensional.
This is basically a plain old amber beer with nothing else to differentiate it. Drinkable for sure, but there are much better beers to be had.
