3.79/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bought from Trader Joe's on 3/23/13. poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mug, served at room temp.

medium orange amber with a no nothing head. I bet lacing will be non existent. I was right.

aroma: sweet caramel malt, reminds me of Sam Adams Oktoberfest. A faint Noble hoppiness meekly presents itself.

mouthfeel: a little unfinished., syrupy.

taste: sweet caramel malts with a touch of spicy noble hops that creates some bitterness at the end.

Notes: not bad. Fairly easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Malty with yeast and bread notes. Clean and fresh--small, tight bubbles. My bet is that is well-lagered for a good 6 to 8 weeks.bought from the TJ store in Charlottesville VA in 3/22/13 for $5.99-a great price point-every other craft beer in central VA is on average, $10.00 per six pack. Recommended.

3.58/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle. Pours brilliant amber with long lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and bready malt. Body is full and crisp. Grassy hops, grain, bready malt and caramel combine on the palate. Finish is long, spicy, hoppy and earthy. Very nice, on a hoppy side, bock.

3.29/5  rDev -7.3%

From Trader Joe's, poured from bottle into a pint glass.
"Best Consumed Before: 07/31/13"

A - Nice amber color, nothing extraordinary, but nice. Good thick head with some retention.

S - Nothing impressive and very minimal scent.

T - Surprisingly good. Some bitterness, some sweet, but smooth and balanced overall. Very easy to drink.

M - Smooth and pretty good. Not much of an aftertaste.

Summary - Not bad. Not my favorite brew, but I wouldn't turn one down.
