look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The first time I had this out of a bottle, I wasn't impressed. This was especially true after enjoying it so many times on draft. I must've had a bad bottle because this came equipped to impress.
Appears a glowing amber with a frothy 2 finger white head. Tons of sticky white lacing clings to the glass. Medium streams of carbonation bubbles come rising to the top.
Smell is of sweet biscuity malts and grain.
Taste is of sweet, toasted biscuits backed with a fresh, hoppy bite.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well rounded as the sweetness fades into a crisp, hop finish.

Finger licking good.
