3.75/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Look - more reddish amber color, murky, with good carbonation and about a finger's worth of foam that dissipates quickly.
Smell - Malty smell, even somewhat worty. Sweet smelling too, possibly using caramel.
Taste and Mouthfeel - Bitter beginning, but that fades quickly into a malty/worty middle and a very sweet, chocolaty finish. Very interesting tasting experience! Texture is pretty smooth, slightly more on the watery side.
Drinkability - Pretty interesting brew. Complex or variable enough to keep one's curiosity peaked, and good-tasting.

Poured from can into Oskar Blues pint glass a semi-cloudy amber, with huge off-white head. No discernible lace.
Nose is nicely toasted grains and malty. Kinda sweet, too. Maybe a slightly aged can?
Taste is smooth and malty-sweet, with plenty of toasty grain flavors. This is an easy-to-drink beer, light and flavorful. A solid and worthy warm weather brew.
