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

A 11.2 ounce Euro bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - Nice reddish-bronze color. Big course head that collapses pretty quickly. Minimal stickage. A good looking brew.

Smell - Slight malt hit. Smells a lot like an American adjunct lager. Odd.

Taste - Very mild carmel note. The hops are hiding, somewhere, in the background.

Mouth - Smooth.

Overall - This ale taste like an American adjunct lager with a touch more malt up front. Not bad, just boring. I was expecting much more.
