I really enjoyed this beer. It pours nicely and smells good even though it came to my house in a 473 mL can. The overall package is quite pleasing. It is heavy on malt and caramel, which is not a terrible thing in my books. The price was right and I would be perfectly content to sip 2 or 3 of these in a sitting.
