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

Pours a dark copper red body one-finger head and minor lace on top of a roasted, grainy malt aroma that doesn't profile much hops. The taste is the same as the beer is light, smooth, there are both grainy, dry malts along with touches of sweet malts (caramel) but the hops are subdued and barely noticeable in this beer. The lack of hops isn't a bad thing but just makes this beer one dimensional and it finishes light and bitterly bland.
