Copper brown in color with excellent clarity. A fingernail of beige colored foam covers the majority of the top. Light aromas of caramel and dark malt are in the aroma. The flavor is subtle caramel and dark malt. The body is smooth and gentle.

Pours a brown color with a redish tint about two fingers of foam and leaves no lace. Aroma is coriander, orange, and maybe a hint of nutmeg but is not overwhelming with aroma very subtle. Taste is very much like the nose, but bread, some orange and spices. However flavor is subtle as well.
