This poured out as a nice looking amber color, the head was very nice on this beer. Good retention and a good lacing also here. The smell of the beer is malty, some caramel and some additional grains on the nose. The flavor of the beer is toasted, with a subtle caramel sweetness in there. The bitterness is rather mellow and not piney or resin like at all. The mouthfeel of the beer is very smooth, the carbonation is minimal but yet still there enough to tingle a little. Overall I found this to be a really nice beer, I wouldn't mind having it again. It's sessionable in my opinion. Very easy going brew.
