look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy amber, with a full head of tan bubbles but no lace. Hmm.

Nose says toasty malty grains. Kinda sweet. Subtle, though. Not bad.

Taste is strong and malty, with plenty of sweet and toasty (even fruity) notes. Certainly not a bad beer, and light enough to session easily, but this one simply doesn’t stand out to make much of an impression.

That said, this would be a wonderful brew to enjoy on a night out with friends. Not too big or heavy, but packed with flavor. Can’t ask for much more than that.
