4.1/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Nice, robust amber looking with a respectable head.

Smell is subtle but on the sweet, maltier side.

Taste....smooth and well balanced. Roastiness, toffee, bready with some hops present as there there is a little citrus flavor there, but no bitterness. Taste is distinct but low key.

Mouthfeel seems to be hovering betwee full and medium bodied and creamy. Really nice, imo.

Overall, one of my absolute favorite beers. It's a pretty simple beer but with some depth to that simplicity. My session beer of choice these days.

5/5  rDev +36.2%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

This is one of my all time favorite beers. If I'm having a hard time making up my mind on what I want to get, this is one beer that I can always rely on for all around good times. The first time I tried it was on tap at a Ducks game in Anaheim and I was first taken in by it's sweet smell. Then I took a sip and have been hooked ever since

This beer goes down smoothly and in a very welcome way, likes to linger on your tongue. I'd gladly recommend this beer to anyone looking to try craft beer.
