A - a clear copper with a short head, decent retention
S - very nutty malt and light roasty odour, some herbal and citrus hop notes balance it out
T - roasted nutty malts and coffee notes up front, the finish has a mix of nutmeg spice and citrus, very interesting mix
M - medium carbonation, tingly sensation fades to a full feeling of spices lingers on the tongue
D - didn't really know what to expect, pleasantly surprised by the mix of flavours and feels, the 7% ABV goes unnoticed, maybe not a sesson beer but a great brew

From the tap, pours nice amber with rich, creamy head that lasts a bit.
Smell is neutral, a bit of grains, but mild.
Light, balanced flavor. Caramel, make presence, a bit of bitter hops, some alcohol burn on the finish, but only mildly.
Easy to drink, light and crisp, clean finish.

341ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.
A - Big frothy light tan head. The beer is a nice clean amber-red hue. Good head retention with some nice lacing.
S - Really nutty. Lots of peanuts and caramel malt. It's simple, but appealing. A nice hearty malty aroma.
T - Caramel malt and nutty character don't translate quite as well as I was hoping. A little metallic. Finishes with a slight hop astringency and alcohol warmth. A lot more nutty than expected, with a slight sweetness to it as well. Overall a nice malty profile, that's drinkable but not exceptional.
M - Light-to-medium carbonation, done fairly well. Body is about medium. Pretty smooth feel. Nice finish.
D - A nice easy drinking ale with a malty profile. Nothing exceptional, but it's something I could see myself trying again. Not too bad.
