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

Served from a growler purchased at the brewpub and drunk upon getting home. I used a tallish pilsener style glass.

Appearance: Clear ruby-twinged brown topped by a smallish frothy offwhite head. No real head retention, but small flecks of foam were left on the glass.

Smell: Biscuity caramelized malts with a hint of smokiness mixing with faint grassy hops.

Taste: Caramelized and bready malts again. Smokiness is a little more apparent, but not like a rauchbier or anything.

Mouthfeel: Lightbodied, suprising given the apparent malt bill.

Drinkability: This is a fine little session beer. It won't make you go, "Holy Shit!!" but will definitely make you say, "Damn!"

Other: this helped me get through one of the debates.. I forget which.
