look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

12oz bottle with no date into pilsner glass

Look is a clear amber with a great looking 2 finger head with okay retention. Smell is some savory roasted amber tones, notes of chocolate and toffee. Little piney hops in there, too. Taste follows with bread, crackers, caramel, toffee, and crisp grain. Hops are almost nonexistant.

Cheers to NB.
