look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22 ounce bottle - $6.48 at Sherlock's in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, amber-orange body with a finger and finger only of white foam.

Smell: Sweet accented bready, softly toasted malts with a slender waft of fruit and nuts. Very meager hop note, but I'm getting to this a bit later than I probably should. I was unfair and I apologize for my poor behavior.

Taste: Bready maltiness, lightly toasty, blended with a restrained toffee-like sweetness, a swell of fruitiness, toasted cashew, and subtle spiciness from the lightly bitter Perle hops. The sweet maltiness and almost berryish fruitiness persists after the bitter subsides on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just on the underside of medium carbonation.

Overall: Not perfect, but smooth, drinkable, served alongside some grilled cheddarwurst from local Heywood's Provision.
