A: Pours a clear copper color with a one finger tan head. Lots of carbonation visible in the glass.

S: Lots of sweet, toasted malt upfront. Some nuttiness and a bit of yeast as well.

T: A pretty solid rich malty flavor throughout with some almond paste, slight hop bite, toasted wheat bread and some buttered toast. Not bad at all.

2 bottles poured into 1 liter dimpled glass.

Appearance: Dark copper color with 2 finger head that dissipates fairly quickly, minimal lacing.

Smell: Sweet malts, some spiciness

Taste: Malty sweetness, some caramel flavors, slight hop presence.

Mouthfeel: Light body, some carbonation

Overall: A nice change up from my steady diet of hop heavy beers. I know fall is around the corner when I start seeing this beer.
