3.26/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a very slightly hazy amber-gold with a half-inch white head.

Smell: Toasted biscuits and a little bit of caramel malt. Smell is predominately bready. Pretty simple, but that is to be expected.

Taste: Similar to the smell. Very biscuity/bready, with a touch of caramel. Maybe some raisins if I dig really deep, but once again there isn't a whole lot of complexity here.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, medium carbonation. Very drinkable, but could benefit from a little more body.

Overall: For what it is, it's a solid beer. Just don't expect anything spectacular. I consider this to be something of a "gateway beer" to craft beer, and it doesn't hurt that you can find it in most bars that don't carry much other than BMC.
