Pours a nice brown with pillowy head that quickly recedes. Minimal aroma so not much to talk about there. I think this beer is often served too cold and that obscures its taste and texture ... I definitely let some of the chill off from pulling it out of the display case at the package store and drink it cool, but not cold. This beer has a nice malty flavor with a hint of hoppiness. I would love it to be a bit thicker and maltier though. The mouth feel is very nice ... smooth and satiny. Again, serve it too cold and the taste and mouth feel attributes disappear.

This excellent beer has a deep amber, almost copper, color and has a thin, white head. The smell is not overwhelming, in fact is very subtle. The taste is absolutely sublime. Not overpowering, not too hoppy, not bitter. It is perfectly balanced. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. This has been my all-time favorite beer for quite some time. It's very hard to beat this beer.
