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

Appearance - a clear dark brown, with no head at all.

Smell - a nice roasted malt smell.

Taste - like the smell, roasted malts.

Mouthfeel - a bit weak, and a bit over carbonated.

Overall - Its an easy beer to drink, not to much depth to the flavor though.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Clear dark amber with a small tan head that became the tiniest ring ever. No lacing.
Smell is clean dark malts a kiss of floral hops.
Taste is mild dark malt with very little bitterness. Not overly sweet just not enough hop presence to satisfy a craft beer palate.
Mouthfeel is watery and a bit over carbonated. There is a very mild bitterness that lingers.
Overall a pretty good beer if it was an "American Light Bock" . Not sure how old this beer might be but it is the first time found in my area of the country so I must assume it is fresh.
