A: A rustic color a slight bit of transparency, this left a nice off white head at the top with some slight lacing around the glass that did not stay for long.

S: Hints of caramel and vanilla up front with the hops very present and slight hints of malt as it warms.

T: This was very well balanced, the nose is almost right there with the taste besides the fact the bitterness takes over, nice warmth from the malts, a slight sweetness on the tail end from what seems to be caramel.

M: Light bodied brew with a good amount of carbonation.

D: This was a very subtle beer, nothing crazy just very simple and to the point with this one, well balanced on the hops and malts.
