4.63/5  rDev +14%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: coppery orange with a thick creamy white head which sticks around for a while. The clarity is top notch

S: There is a rich malty sweetness with bread and biscuity notes.

T: this beer is very sweet with hints of bread and biscuit throughout. there is a slight caramel sweetness in the background. and the finish is just a touch sweet which keeps me from rating this 5.

M: mouthfeel is thick and smooth, but as noted earlier, the finish is not dry enough for this style

D: This is a fantastic beer. Its almost completely accurate to style except I feel it finishes too sweet (almost cloying) to be given all fives. Nonetheless this is a great beer, one that I would drink all year round
