look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 fluid oz. bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear amber with a thin head. Decent carbonation.

Aroma: Extremely malty aroma of a standard brown or amber beer.

Taste: Malty taste. with a decent amount of flavor. Very pleasant and not offensive whatsoever. A refined Yuengling lager in my opinion.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp and refreshing. Not heavy in any aspect, yet also does not come off as watery. Very nice!

Overall: A fantastic session beer. Goes down smooth, not heavy, but with a lot of flavor. Very satisfying!

Serving type: bottle
