3.08/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The beer is a reddish brown with my pour producing a decent off white head about 3/4 inch in height. Head quickly fades to a ring around the glass the leaves litte lacing.

Smell: Some lightly sweet malt aromas, leaning towards a lightly roasted caramel scent. Nothing hoppy, although I do not expect anything. A subdued aroma.

Taste: This is mostly a malty beer, which gives it a touch of sweetness. Taste leans to a lightly roasted caramel and bready taste. A little hop bitterness on the finish balances this one out.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium in body. A lively carbonated beer. Prickly on the tongue yet smooth going down.

Drinkability: Purchased as part of a mixed 12 pack. A decent beer, I do not know that I would search this one out to purchase seperately, but would not toss these if I purchased a mixed pack with them again.

3.35/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark red almost a brown amber color. It had a dark tan head and lace that was thin and disappeared quickly.

Smell: It smelled like caramel with a small amount of hops to the nose.

Taste: The flavor had tones of cereal and burnt caramel with also a mild bitterness. The aftertaste was an odd sour taste.

Mouthfeel: It had a medium body with a little carbonation bite.

Overall: It is alright. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it but it was in a sample pack.
