3.5/5  rDev -7.7%

Beer pours brown in color with a strong white head.

Flavor is light and crisp, some malt and chocolate but not overwhelming in any way.

Flavors are very subtle and subdued. Beer is ok, nothing special.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a "pint" glass. Pours brown with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of caramel, nice fruitiness, and a hint of nuttiness. Tastes of fruit with a tad of nuts. Beer is light bodied and nicely carbonated. Overall, a very good beer.
