3.08/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear amber with a fizzy, quickly dissipating white head.

S: Gentle aromas of bready malt, toffee, and cream are just barely detectable on the nose. Pretty much exactly what one would expect out of a beer of this style. Smells a bit generic to me.

T: Malty and rich on the palate with notes of fresh bread, toffee, roasted nuts, cream, and minerals. The finish is bready and lightly sweet with notes of toffee, nuts, and cream.

M: Medim bodied, silky, and smooth with gentle, unobtrusive carbonation. Very drinkable.

O: This is a smooth beer that would pair well with food, but it is not all that memorable on its own. It's one of those beers that pretty much does all that you would expect it to and nothing more.
