Pours a nice cloudy copper color. There is a slight bit of carbonation that creates a thin white head that has great retention.
Smell has a nice caramel malt smell. There is a bit of toffee smell to it also. At the end there is a slight hop smell with a bit of fruity smell to it.
The taste of the beer has a little less to it than the smell. However, you can detect a bit of the caramel and toffee but it is much stronger in the hops department. Good strong aftertaste of hops.
Very nice thick and smooth mouthfeel. Goes right down.
This beer is very drinkable because of the very smooth mouthfeel. I wouldn't want to drink a ton of these because of the thickness and nothing exciting about the taste, but a good drink to have a couple with dinner.
