3.85/5 rDev +7.2%
Apperance: Amber with a small white head which clung to the glass.
Smell: Malty, with notes of grains (wheat, barley?) somewhat like fresh baked bread. Very enviting.
Taste: Lots of different flavors (as a novice hard to pick one dominant flavor out). Not overly intimidating which is good, as this beer is usually on of the first that the macro drinker would try if trying something different. Noticeable hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, smooth, easy going down.
Drinkability: Very good intorduction beer for macro drinkers. If I have friends who normally won't drink a micro (BMC folks) I think it would be easy to hook them on this beer. Easy to have more than one.
One of the most popular micro brews sold in Lincoln. Its easy to tell why. This is an easy to drink micro beer that is beyond the typical macro, yet it would be a good introduction to get the macro drinker into drinkin micros and specialty beers.

3.83/5 rDev +6.7%
Appearance: Pours amber...clear. Decent head, okay retention. Lacing minimal
Aroma: Caramel malts, some breadiness.
Taste: Caramel, sweetish malts, the breadiness is somewhat there as well..good combination of flavors...overall good
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied...but on the lighter side of the medium spectrum. If that makes sense.
Drinkability: Relatively low ABV, good body, tastes good, nothing offensive to the flavor...sounds drinkable to me.

From a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark amber with a good 2 inch foamy head that has some good lacing. Has a nice nutty hue. Definitely a dark caramelized malt taste with slight chocolate taste, but not overpowering hops or any flavor. Good carbonation and goes down smooth. A good tasty beer that I am glad has finally reached VA.

Overall I like this brew quite a bit. Pours a clear pale yellow/amber with a 2-finger off-white head that dissipates quickly yet leaves a lace. The smell is that of a nutty malt with some earthy notes as well. Light bodied mouthfeel with a smooth well balanced flavor of a slight grainy, touch of caramel flavor, and finishes with a pecan type flavor on the tail. Highly drinkable. Cheers!
