A nice ale, but not anything to write home about. It is good, nice aroma and good tase but to me, seems to lack a little care, almost seems to be leaning to the mass produced, less quality style that too many of the big brewers produce. Don't get me wrong, this is a good beer and by no way I am not comparing to the Bud Lites of the world. It is enjoyable but doesn't quite reach the standards that have been set by other craft brewers. Overall good job
