I was expecting something different when I sampled this beer but really was pleasantly surprised by its smoothness. It is a reddish color with a semi-sweetness, not-too-hoppy flavor, and I could easily drink many pints of this, but I did not! (I'm driving) ABV=5.4 so it is very drinkable with no bite involved. Smoooth!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is burnt copper with half a finger of head. The head had modest retention and left a trace of lacing behind. The nose has mild bready notes. The flavor profile is malty and hearty, but it is just a bit shy of earning the title of "full-bodied." There is a mild dry hop bitterness on the finish.

An excellent example of the style and very sessionable, indeed.
