3.64/5  rDev -7.8%

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma malty/biscuity
Head average (3 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to irregular partial 2 mm layer
Lacing OK - one partial ring with stalactites and some small islands with tiny to small bubbles
Body medium orange, hazy
Flavor malty with bitter aftertaste; no hops, no alcohol, no diaceetyl
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 3, Aroma 3.75, Flavor 3.75, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.5. Final weighted score: 3.6375
While the head is attractive, the lacing (meh) and the color/clarity of the ale leave a lot to be desired. The aroma is very tempting and the flavor does not miss expectations. The palate is pretty good. Overall, this is a reliable ale – good but not outstanding.

A straight forward beer. No nonsense.

Bronze amber in color and holds a decent head.

Starts out sweet which is quickly rounded out by the bitterness of hops. A slight bite from carbonation, but not too much.

Overall, extremely drinkable and not overly complex. A beer I could drink everyday and not need to be in the mood for to drink it (i.e. something like a quad).
