Excellent, clear copper-colored body with a thick, sticky, creamy, white head; excellent lacing on the glass. Rich, biscuit-like aroma; mild spicy, floral hop notes. Smooth, toasted malt flavors up-front; light caramel and subtlety burnt sugar; light fruitiness in the aftertaste. Smooth, rich, medium-bodied.

A nicely balanced beer with some interesting malt complexities. Grain flavors over-ride the hop characteristics and masks the ABV. A good journeyman representation of this catch-all style.
