12 ounce bottle poured into an appropriately sized mug. The modest lacing falls a bit short of the handsome deep orange body below. Modestly sweet toffee aromas are complemented by subtle fruity, leafy and nutty notes. There's a tad more depth of flavor than the nose would suggest, although it's not as robust as I'd like. Lingering tangy toffee and mild sweetness are the closest things we have to lasting impressions here. Appropriately mild bitterness with modest leafy hop flavor and carbonation. Notions of bread crust with apple butter. A touch thickish on the palate. Quite easily drinkable, but ultimately forgettable.
