Pours a beautiful deep and clear amber. A thin and fizzy white head dissipates quickly but a steady stream of carbonation leaves some bubbles at the top. The aroma is sweet and all I get is caramel. It's almost too sweet, bordering on candy. The taste has a much more refined caramel quality with a little nutty aspect and there's just a hint of earthy hops. A little thinner on the body but not off. A slight tickle from the carbonation. A decent example of the style.
