look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Case was at work for a party. 12 oz bottle.

A: Amber color, fairly clean, a tad murky with some bubbles rising to the top. Big thick foamy off white head, stick to the glass pretty well.

S: Grain. Lots of bread and malt aromas, cereal grains are probably the most dominant notes.

T: Really malty. strong biscuit and grain flavors. Finish is filled with some darker fruits, raisins or plums, but it's pretty one dimensional on the grain.

M: A bit of a saving grace. It's got a really nice firm body, smooth finish, very drinkable and approachable.

O: Overall its fine, easily available and fairly priced. It's pretty unremarkable as a beer, but sometimes that works well, especially at an office party.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: pours a clear amber/copper into a DFH snifter with a finger and half to two fingers of pure white head.

S: caramel, toasted bread, some light darker fruits.

T: starts sweet and super malty, with a light grassy note. It softly but noticeably shifts to a lemon.

MF: medium body, light carbonation, refreshing.

O: a good beer that could be better, but around my area (now that its available in my region) it usually the best tap choice.
