Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clear coppery amber color with about 1/2 inch of off-white head that had moderate retention and decent lacing.

The aroma was fairly typical for the style, nicely malty, a bit of grain and biscuit, and some nice balancing hops. There was a bit of an odd sweetness to the aroma that I found a bit off-putting. The flavor profile was pretty typical as well, malty, a bit sweet, and some mildly tangy hops for balance. That odd aspect, kind of a funk, was a bit more notable on the tongue than it was in the nose and cost the beer some points.

The body was the expected medium, with a slightly sticky finish. Drinkability suffered a bit from that off taste. Overall, a decent beer. I should probably give it a bit lower of a score, but the other brews I've had from this brewery have been solid, so I'll give the benefit of the doubt on this one. Get a taster before yo commit to a pint and decide for yourself.
