Pours out a nice copper color with a quickly dissapearing small head of white soapy bubbles. Lots of pretty carbonation popping up through the beer. Lacing drops nicely down the glass.
Smells delicous! Nice sweet malts with a bit of caramel and some toffee notes.
Taste is similar to the smell with plenty of sweet malts. And there is just a hint of those wonderful caramel and toffee hints hidden inside. I also pick up a note of some hops dancing around here as well.
Mouth feel borders on medium but is really not terribly heavy. The finish is just a bit wet.
Overall I really liked this beer. The nose and the taste both are not overpowering in the least and make this a very pleasent and easy drinking beer.
