3.68/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

appearance- Dark red to light brown in color, two finger head that comes down eventually to a thin layer of foam, fairly good lacing is visible.

smell- caramel comes to the nose first, with light hops and a touch of malt in the background.

taste- caramel sweet taste, with a hint of dark fruits. all in all there was really a lack of flavor, but the flavor that was there was good.

mouthfeel- perhaps a bit to thin. i would say it's a bit below a medium bodied beer.

drinkability- very drinkable and is a session beer.

notes: the real weak spots in this beer are the lack of flavor and mouthfeel. otherwise it really isn't all that bad, but nothing special.

Serving type: bottle
