look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into a pint glass. Color was caramel, but fairly clear. About a finger and ½ head. Lots of tan lacing. Healthy drizzle on the side.

Smelled of red malt - skunky, rye (if I knew what ray smelled like) and grains, Absolutely no hops/

Tasted of grainy malts with earthy tones. It got bitter late, but nothing too bad.

Medium body. Average carbonation. An abrupt finish. Smooth, crispy and clean.

Not a bad beer, but nothing spectacular. It did it’s job and got us ready for the postseason.

An OK beer overall. It started out great until one place overran us.
