3.7/5 rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deeper golden color with a big white head. The head a moderate to low level of retention, but gives some nice lacing on the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of some roasted malt with a good deal of sweetness. The malt is of a roasted biscuit and bready smell while the sweet is largely of a toffee like smell in nature.
Taste – The beer begins with taste of roasted malt and some caramel. The roasted flavors are lighter at first and get stronger toward the middle of the taste. Toward the middle a toffee takes the place of the caramel as the sweetness becomes more buttery. With this transition the result is a slightly sweeter brew. At the end a pleasant sweeter roasted biscuit flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is on the lower side in terms of thickness and creaminess and was a little watery. The body could have used a bit more thickness to accentuate the roasty flavors. The carbonation level of the brew however was quite average and fitting for the style.
Overall- It is very light and easy to drink with a nice not too sweet, but sweet roasted flavor. A brew that makes for a decent session beer.

3.24/5 rDev -5.8%

Had several of these while in New Orleans this week.
Pours a nice clear amber colour. 1/4 inch head on the pour recedes to a thin cap. Spots of lacing here and there.
Aroma is mostly malty. Hints of caramel and biscuit with the odd whiff of herbal hops.
Flavour is pretty much on cue with the aroma. Malty and a little nutty with caramel and just a touch of hops.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty easy drinking.
This ale is decent. I got tired of it though as I had several of these at a variety of receptions this week. Worth a try
