look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Welp...since I reviewed Fat Tire's big brother Ranger, why not give this one a spin? You know the old saying, you've made it big when you're on a neon sign behind the glass of your local wine and spirits place at the grocery store...

A: Nice, average fiery amber coloring with acceptable lacing on the glass.

S: Decently average smell of bready malts with some hints of caramel.

T: Well...um...it's average. It's a malt bomb with an adequate amount of roasted, bready, biscuity flavor. Not detecting much hops on the tongue.

M: Very average in its feel, with an average amount of carbonation and heft on the tongue.

O: This could very well the most average beer I've ever drank. Nothing terrible about it, and nothing great, either (except for the value that is...) It's a monument to pure adequacy, therefore, 3's across the board for this one!

PS: this would make absolutely fabulous beer bread.
