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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance is a nice amber color with lost of visible carbonation and foamy offwhite head.

Smell is dominated by caramel malts with a hint of hoppy bitterness.

Taste follows the nose. Really nice caramel sweetness with a bitter finish

Mouthfeel is a highlight for me - some ambers can be a bit too sweet but the carbonation and bitter finish makes this beer very refreshing to drink.

Overall an excellent example of the style.
