A - Poured from a BBC bomber into a tulip glass. Nice finger worth of head. Hazy amber copper. I'm surprised by this, I figured the beer would be a little lighter in color. Not much retention and no lacing.

S - Sweet. Caramel mostly.

T - I'm surprised by this. I'm getting almost entirely caramel notes with just the faintest hint of noble hop character on the back end. Bitterness is low to non-existent.

M - Medium-bodied, not much going on here to describe.

O - I read some of the other reviews and they all point out the malty sweetness of this beer, so I'm pretty sure I'm drinking the same thing that they are, but these caramel-sweet beers are just not for me.

Appears a clean golden with white head looks nice
Smell is pleasant floral sweet
Quality tasting lager good level of bready and fruity sweetness with a crisp spicy hop character
Smooth mouth feel good level of carbonation for a spring beer, dry sorta finish making you keep drinking
Overall enjoyable beer would get again
