3.73/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a clear lightly hued bronze with a small white head.
Aroma is mostly caramel malts and biscuity, toasted bread notes. Even a little hop character shows through.
Taste is similar with some bready, roasted malts before giving way to a slightly more bitter floral hop finish.
Medium body with the most exceptional creamy mouthfeel.

Pretty good per the style but I've had so many people tell me this was their favorite beer that you couldn't get on the East Coast. Now that it's here I don't see what all the fuss is about. it's a pretty solid, and very drinkable brew. And I will say, on tap, only intensifies the creaminess and smoothness this beer has. I enjoy it much better on draft.
