look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
12oz bottle into NB globe glass
A - deep clear amber/brown in color with less than one finger of off-white head that dissipates rapidly.
S - chalky, bready, moldy, wet paint. I'm getting a slight hop nose but it's muddled. Not winning me over with the smell.
T - Malt dominates from the start. Hops are most present on the back end and after taste. Don't really know how describe the taste besides an average amber. Hops don't really add or subtract overall.
M - medium. Finishes medium as well. Somewhat coating on the palate.
O - I am pretty Meh on most of the recent NB offering and on ambers in general. When you combine the two, I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the results. Drinkable, but I wouldn't but it on the "have again" list. Average at best.
