3.6/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Sam adams pint

Very crisp copper color, head was big and thick for a a very short time and went to pretty well nothing. No lace

Smells of sweet malt and grassy hops, small traceable notes of a sweet fruit as well

Flavor is ok no one outstanding charecter, hops are present as well as some bready flavor and sweetness from the malt. Finish is very dry and the body pretty thin. Overall a very straightforward amber but I dont get any spices that is notmal for a Marzan

Easy to drink but to be honest a little dry and bready, leaves with a near cottonmouth finish and a slight alcohol burn, very slight

Serving type: bottle
