3.4/5 rDev +5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Amber/copper hue with decent clarity. One finger soapy off-white head.
Aroma: Some breadyness and just a hint of pine or some slight spice from the hops or possibly the yeast.
Taste: Sort of a straightforward malty palate. Nothing impressive. There's caramel and amber malts with just a hint of some fruit or spice like in the nose. This could actually pass for an Octoberfest if it had more grain flavor. Leaves you with a bit of a sugar-sweet aftertaste. I feel like it's missing out on the subtle roasty flavors or hop character that could make it stand out.
Mouthfeel: Between medium and light in body. Actually pretty robust for the 4.4% abv. High drinkability.
Final Thoughts: I wish there had been a little more to this beer. Maybe in body or the selection of malts used. It's a little too generic. However, it'd be the perfect selection for someone who is new to craft beer.
Serving type: bottle
