3.28/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Pours a clear reddish amber color with a half finger of foam that dissipates quickly without lacing. Aroma is somewhat malty, stale bread, plum, and a kiss of earthy hops.
First sip is pretty straightforward - a hint of malty sweetness, a touch dry, and finishing with a bit of metallic twang. Overall, pretty straightforward - not a ton of flavor or anything that really excites the palate. Hop flavor is muted, and there is a slight bitterness in the finish.
Well, this beer has some potential, but unfortunately it really falls short of being great. It just doesn't have a ton of flavor. No real off flavors but that's not a glowing endorsement.

3.36/5 rDev -1.8%

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.
