Dirty light brown color. Modest starting head but it leaves rings of lace after each sip.

Caramel and cream are the first aromas.

Rich body with a solid pale malt base. Lots of alcohol on the tongue. Strong hop finish which brings great balance. The aftertaste lingers subtly with an alcohol warmth.
