Pours a clear golden amber color with a modest half inch beige head that dissipates fairy quickly.

Caramel, nutty roast malt, toffee, and melanoidin comprise the aroma, with just a touch of floral hops.

Flavor reveals floral hops initially, which are overtaken by sweet, bready caramel malt. There's a bit if nutty, toffee flavor, and a touch of fruity esters at the end of the sip. The finish is toasty and somewhat dry.

Body is moderate to full, with moderate to low carbonation, and there's a slight alcohol warmth.

Overall, a very malty offering, per style. Not the most depth of flavor. Wish there had been a little more complexity.
