Pours a coppery amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of light caramel malt some grains and light fruity notes. Taste same as aroma with mild bitter notes. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation. Finish is light caramel malt and grains, light bitterness and fruity notes, and a mild nutty ending. Overall not a very robust brew in flavor and aroma, just an ok brew.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Shipyard Pumpkinhead pint glass.

The color is a slightly hazy light orange/gold with two fingers of foamy white head a slight touch of lacing.

The smell has candy-like aroma that has a touch of cane sugar with a bread dough. There is also a slight toffee aroma in the background that is quite faint but comes out just slightly in the nose.

The taste is mostly malts at first with a hint of maple and sweet peanut brittle flavor that seems to land on the front part of the tongue and the move backward till there is a slight bitterness that comes out late.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied and nicely drinkable. There is the standard smooth feel that is easy going down and leaves just a slight after taste that hangs a bit longer then is needed but does not take anything off the experience.
