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

A: dark copper in color; off white head that dissipated quickly; almost no lacing;

S: toasted malt and yeast;

T: toasted malt up front; adds some sweet fruit in the med-palate along with a light bitterness in the background that builds through the finish (but never overwhelms); finish is relatively short and somewhat dry;

M: a little thin; prickly carbonation that flattens quickly when it hits your mouth;

O: well balanced; complex; enjoyable; easy to drink; would pair well with a wide variety of foods;
