look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: A clear, dark copper body with one finger of somewhat lasting head that dissipated into a thin layer of foam. Decent lacing.
Smell: Sweet malt, caramel, roasty.
Taste: Follows nose very closely, roasty, malty, caramel. Next to no hops present, but far from being overly sweet.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth and creamy, yet very drinkable. This beer has moderate carbonation and no alcohol detectable on the palate.
Overall: There's nothing that I can say bad about this beer, yet not a whole lot that I am overwhelmed by. This is a highly drinkable, enjoyable beer that warrants multiples at a party or other get together. There is some amount of excitement surrounding this beer's release every year that can only be justified by it being the most readily available yet tasty example of this style.
