A - This beer is as advertised, amber in color, with golden highlights. It is topped with an inch of off-white head. There is some suspended yeast as well.

S - I smell sweet caramel malt. It almost has a maple sweetness to it.

T - The taste has a sweet caramel taste to it along with some toffee. There are some faint hops but pretty sweet overall.

M - Medium

O - This is a pretty good beer. It is a little sweet, but it is a decent amber.

Pours a brilliant, copper-brown. 2 inch head forms with rougher texture (larger bubbles) than expected. The off-white-to-tan head settles quickly to a 1/4 inch leaving some Belgian lace behind. The nose has notes of bread and malt without any evident hop. Hints of dried fruit (raisins?) and caraway reminiscent of Irish soda bread. Medium-to-light body. Sweet. Singular malt notes on the palate. Highly drinkable and thirst quenching. Straight forward. Modest carbonation.
