look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Clear light amber color with an ecru head and a little lace. Aroma is toasted wheat bread with some nuttiness and diacetyl. Flavor is not much different except for vague notes of caramel, iced tea, and metal. Thin and watery mouthfeel, drinkable but not very good. Not exactly a big surprise.

Serving type: bottle

3.28/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear amber colored head with about an inch of an off white head. Doesn't seem to be a lot of carbonation going on.

Smell is a bit nutty, hints of caramel and bread as well.

Taste starts out a bit sweet, like a caramel type of sweetness. Little bit f nuttiness and bread, finishes with a bit of hop bitterness that lingers a bit.

Nothing too special about the feel, nothing bad either. Could use a little more carbonation.

Not a bad beer, not a great beer, kind of an inoffensive one that is still several cuts above mass market beers. When you consider the price, as I spent roughly 50 cents per bottle, it is actually a really good value. This would be a great beer for a party when you have people timid about craft beer, and want to give them something a bit better than the usual mass markets, and don't want to spend a lot.
