3.77/5  rDev +24.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a red/amber color with a very thin head that quickly dissipates
Smell: A brief peaty smokiness followed by caramel and malt
Flavor: Follows the nose with a dry finish, and a bready aftertaste that fades fast
Mouthfeel: Thin, but not as thin as a pilsner or light lager, follows a traditional red ale style
Overall: A good beer for the money, not one that I'd scoff at as a craft drinker, and one that a BMC drinker could also enjoy, would buy again.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thick off white head that falls moderately with some very light lacing. Head retention is good throughout the drink. Color is clear reddish-amber with moderate streaming carbonation.
Aroma: malt is quite dominate with whole wheat bread and caramel. There is an earthy hop presence in the background.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and frothy with a quick somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: caramel and a strong bread presence with a mild earthy hops in the finish.
Overall: a decent and drinkable brew.

Delicious and underappreciated. Biscuity breadiness and easy to drink. Slightly one dimensional but I'm never disappointed with this.
