3.54/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber (surprise!) with a very modest head that leaves some splashy lacing behind

Smell: Cereal grains, nuts and butterscotch

Taste: Cereal grains, up front, with the nuts and butterscotch; very malty in the finish, much like the Munich malt flavors found in an Oktoberfest

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This reminds me of a first generation micro brew; nothing wrong with it but very sweet and malty

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into mug
(11/19/2013 ... drank on 12/23/13)

L: red brown, dark brown; crystal clear ... it's amber with a heavy brown emphasis; weak head, 1/8-inch thick, dies quickly; leaves a nice skin of foam

S: caramel, corn, sour grain, creamed corn

T: nutty, like an English brown ale, loads of malt ... caramel; smoky hop hints like an American brown ale; grain; peach; toasted grain; has lots of taste, at times a weird mix but interesting

F: solid all around

O: not terrible, not fantastic ... the nutty malt taste is intriguing enough to seek it out again.
