4.5/5  rDev +16.6%

Dense, rocky, off-white head; clear, copper body. Aroma immediately gives off caramel with cool, earthy hops. Flavor is predominantly rich, toasted malt and hop bitterness with a lingering grainy malt quality in the finish. Medium body; crisp, substantial carbonation.

Crisp and refreshing with considerable bitterness complemented nicely by the malty sweetness. Alcohol flavor still comes through in the finish despite the 4.9% ABV.

3.12/5  rDev -19.2%

Bottle dated 4UZ at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma very faint hoppyness
Head average (4 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing
Lacing OK – broken rings and a few small islands of tiny bubbles
Body medium amber, clear
Flavor begins bitter, quickly becomes slightly malty: no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

Not to my taste but pretty much meets the style guidelines.
Appearance 3.5, Aroma 3, Flavor 3, Palate 3.25. Overall: 3.12
