I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. In my opinion it's best when you can get it on tap, but still quite good in the bottle if served in a good glass. It had a slight biscuit taste. Overall, you can't go wrong with this beer, and to top it off, it's sold almost everywhere, which is nice when there's no other options except macro brews.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Sam Adams glass

A: Amber, clear, low moderate carbonation, pinky sized head.

S: Caramel, biscuit, malty, a little floral, light toffee. Overall not a very strong smelling beer.

T: Light flavor, caramel, toffee, light hoppyness towards end, light malty aftertaste.

M: Light, smooth, has a somewhat dry finish.

O: Simple tasty beer. Nothing stands out but the balance and smoothness make it a good session beer. This is what macro American beers should be like, easy drinking but with flavor. Good beer when eating or when there is nothing else but macro beers available.
