Pours a very pretty amber color with white head that forms a nice lace.

Toffee and plenty of toasted malt in the nose.

Smooth with a medium body and chewy mouthfeel. Nice balance of caramel and toasty characters with just enough hops to make it interesting. Plenty of flavor throughout and I cannot get enough of the malt complexity.

I love this beer. It brings back memories as this was one of my early transition beers into the craft beer world. Classic.
