3.66/5  rDev -2.7%

Good starting head but it leaves no lace. Muddy, dark amber color.

Darker "toasty" malt aroma with a touch of alcohol warmth.

Thin bodied and highly carbonated. There's a definitive Belgian yeast flavor. Relatively dry with a light hop bitterness kicking in with he swallow. Short aftertaste but it's a good blend of all of the elements.

Had the opportunity to have this beer at Atwoods Tavern in Cambridge, MA.

A- Brown, slightly hazy, light head and carbonation.

S- Light nose but hints of Belgian notes

T- Malty and sweet like a UK session, but supported by the Belgian yeast flavors.

M- moderate body, but not extremely heavy or chewy, lighter carbonation.

Overall- it was a tasty beer. Great to have on a night I when I wanted to drink casually with friends without having to deal with a high ABV. It has all the characteristics of a malty British session ale, but with a Belgian yeast.
