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

A - this is a very attractive beer. the bottle and stickers remind me more of a bottle of scotch, it has a really clean old school feel that i like a whole lot. the color is a nice amber and the head tops off my pint glass. i give it a 4.5 because unfortunately the head diminishes quite a bit.

S - bitter and hoppy with a bit of citrus and a nice malt background. pretty good but not outstanding.

T - i like the bitterness level here. this is how hops should support a beer in my opinion. the malt is a nice caramel flavor. nothing too overpowering or subtle either. there are some nice notes of citrus. a nice bitter finish. solid.

M - the hops and light carbonation play off of each other nicely for a good tingly feeling. nothing that makes me go "WOW" though.

D - the drinkability is good. allthough i don't think i could ever make a solid session out of these, it has a syrupy quality that comes out after a few and makes it a bit satiating. i could do about 3 of these though, not bad.
