look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Deep copper, like a shiny penny. Totally clear. Robust carbonation; 1/4" beige head with a ring of lacing that lingers, some sticks on the side of the glass as it goes down.

Aroma: Malty, roasty, sweet, slight floral/fragrant note.

Taste: Semi-sweet arrival, dry across mid-palate, clean, bitter end. Leaves the impression of more sweetness on mid-palate than is actually there. Really distinctive malt profile lingers.

Mouthfeel: Hefty, bordering on slick, viscous.

Overall: I don't know the style well, but the BJCP guidelines overall description fits this to a tee. "An easy-drinking pint. Malt-focused with an initial sweetness and a roasted dryness in the finish." I swear I did not read that until AFTER I rated it.

Serving type: bottle
