3.42/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper with a finger-width head. Lacing moderate.

Aroma: Smells of alcohol, malts, earth, grassy hops, and a little touch of pine.

Taste: The taste is a mix of alcohol burn and some somewhat bitter hops. Decent malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: A little lighter than I expected. Medium to less-than-medium.

Overall: Pretty average beer. Not much of a "beast," like the label says, but not unpleasant.
