The appearance was a clear amber colored body that yields a nice lumpy yet foamy one finger white head and lasts for a good minute and a half. No carbonation is seen rising. Some light spider web lacing is left. The smell has some sweet light hints of caramel coming in and out with each different sniff. The taste is toasty and brings back the caramel really strong while adding a decent yet subtle flavoring of hops. A very nice crisp aftertaste adds to this. The palate is about a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, and is very sessionable. Overall, this is a pretty good beer for its style that I could have again with its respectable food.
