Appearance- Bright amber, caramel color and slightly hazy. Pours a one finger fizzy head that quickly dissipates within a minute or two.

Aroma- Bright fruits like berry/grapes, sweet caramel, slightly toasted malts.

Taste- Very sweet caramel malts upfront along with fruity flavors and a very mild hop presence. Malty sweetness lingers to the finish and kind of balanced by a toasty malt flavors.

Feel- Not sure how old this beer is, but it doesn't seem very carbonated. Maltiness gives a smooth finish, but lingers slightly longer than needed.

Overall- A sweeter beer than I generally prefer and I definitely have some questions regarding the freshness of the beer (L 046 m on the back, not sure what it means). Regardless, in its current condition it's still a solid beer that I'd gladly give another shot. ( 82/100).
