This beer poured a deep amber copper color. It was a touch cloudy, with a persistent tawny off white head.

There is an intense dark bread, graham cracker like maltiness, with a moderate grassy, somewhat vegetal, hop aroma. The aroma is clean with no fruitiness. There is a hint of caramel as it warms.

The flavor is malty yet hoppy. The flavor balances to hops but there is a ,lingering graham cracker, nutty caramelly maltiness in the finish. There is a not insignificant diacetyl note here. The finish has a touch of hop bitterness but is malty and caramelly overall'

Overall,this is a tasty beer It is a bit flabby to style - a little sweet and full bodied but a very tasty quaff.
