look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Clear golden yellow with a white as snow head.

Smell: A sweet malty aroma.

Taste: Similar to the nose, a rather sweet initial taste of malts that bitters out on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Super super smooth and drinkable.

Overall: I was very impressed with this beer for how smooth it was. VERY drinkable. It tasted similar to boddingtons or john smiths, i enjoyed this a lot.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Presentation: Pint glass on draft at the brewery.

Appearance: Bright, golden color. Very clear. Low carbonation with thin lacing.

Smell: Little to no smell. Expected to smell all-grain malt. The beer may have been served to cold.

Taste: Malt flavor lingers with strong aftertaste. Really expected this to balance quickly

Mouthfeel: Crisp with a medium body.

Notes: Every time I try this style on draft at the brewery it is different. I have had better in the past from Penn Brewery.
