Finally, a chance to have some Rock Art brew again. Poured this 12 oz bottle into my favorite pint glass.
A - Pours a hazy rusty brown with almost no head. What little head there is does leave a thin collar and a few loose dots of lacing.
S - Toasted malt mainly with a toffee backing.
T - Slightly malty sweet with a toasty bitterness. Finishes very bready.
M - Thin, but not watery. Enough weight to prevent that, and the carbonation is medium-high.
D - Modest ABV and decent flavor. Sessioning is definitely a possibility if this one appeals to you
Overall - The first Rock Art beer I've had in a long time, and while it's not absolutely amazing, it satisfied.

A: A deeper amber color. Very, very clear. Minimal head but pretty decent lacing.
S: Malts dominate the nose. Bready, caramel, and toast are adjectives that all come to mind.
T: Once again the malts are the forefront of the beer. I feel like the focus is more on the bready/toasty characteristics , which personally I like, and they avoided that generic overdone gummy caramel character that far to many ambers have. That being said there's a bit of caramel but its not overdone.No real hops to be found which is somewhat of a let done but it still does a good job focusing on the malt. Perhaps a touch of fruity esters. Bitterness is appropriate.
M: Fairly low carbonation which is nice and makes it easy drinking. The body medium.
O: A good beer. It would have been much nicer with some decent hop profile, even the typical cascade would have been nice. None the less a good transition beer and its pretty easy to drink a few.
