Poured an almost orange amber color. A small head beige in color was produced and didn't last nor was there any lacing.
Aroma was mostly seet caramel malts with a slight toasted scent. Faint hops.
The taste was much like the nose: sweet caramel malts and lightly toastted malts towards the ending. I detect perhaps a hint of fruity malts.
A drinkable easy going beer. It's boring but then it is a standard too.

Had this beer many times but wanted to do a full review. Good looking beer that does not offer much to the nose. A little to clear in appearance for me, but good head that grabs the glass and leaves lacing. Tasty beer that I enjoy but not one of my favorites. Buy if nothing else is available but not a beer that i seek out.
