Notes/Commercial Description:
The unofficial name for this beer is “Super Glide”. Malty rich with a hint of spicy hops and roasted grains. This beer is one smooth ride with a clean finish!

3.45/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours deep maroon roasty red. Some white foam atop but very thin. Deep malty smell, some caramel. Sweet toasty caramel. Good flavor that fades out without any real bite. Pick up some hop in the aftertaste. Lighter mouthfeel.

Good, but not remarkable.

3.36/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
