This is pretty good. Nice biscuity breadiness to it. Smell isn't very impressive, but the taste is on point. I could easily drink several of these in a session. Would buy again.

A: Nice clear brown/amber color with a nice 1.5 inch fluffy white head. Sticks with you, leaves moderate to heavy amounts of lacing on the edges, all the way to the bottom of the glass.

S: Nice malty, mildly sweet, grain smell. Very pleasant, nothing off putting here.

T: Slight sweet, malty, toast flavor. Minimal hop presence, almost undetectable. Has hints of an indescribable flavor that reminds me of a brown ale, which I do not like. Kind of a hint of staleness to it. Not sure if it is normal or a odd bottle, would like to check out again to compare.

M: Light to medium amber. This is a lighter option when looking for a heartier beer. More substance here without being overly heavy or thick.

O: Was pleasant, a nice departure from all the over the tops hops that seem to be the trend these days. Not necessarily a standout, but is worth a taste.

Probably won't seek out again, may possibly purchase, depends if I am in the mood for it. Not a wow beer, but pleasant.
