Clear golden color with almost no activity. Slightly foamy white, lasting around 5 minutes, with decent legs and swirl effect. Flavors of caramel, rye, barley, walnuts, light roast, chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, and berries. Slick and smooth full body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish, thick malty feel of cereal and bread with balanced leafy hops. Toffee and vegetal. Filling and decently pleasant, but lacks complexity. Good freshness and accessibility. Nothing amazing to note, pretty basic. Unfortunately probably light struck from the clear glass bottle. Overall good quality craft.
