Light reddish brown colored with an oatmeal colored head that settles out quickly.

Low aroma of toasted biscuit malt.

Flavors of nutty and biscuity malt, hints of toffee and caramel, some light toasted malt and some herbal notes. Nice bitterness, offsets the malt without being too aggressive. Good flavor for the style. Subtle and delicate but tasty.

Moderate carbonation, even mouthfeel, bubbly across the tongue, but finishes a bit tannic.

Tasty beer, very drinkable.
