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

Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a pint glass. The liquid a medium dark amber with good Carbonation. The head is 1 finger 1 thick, off white and leaves some lace.

The smell is big caramel malt.

The taste follows, very nice light toasty caramel flavor.

The mouthfeel is good medium body but almost too much carbonation.

The drinkability is good, this beer war brewed to session. MK

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance is a nice copper and head is small and light.
Odor is light. Doesn't really have much. A little malty, but still pretty light.
Mouth feel is pretty good. It is a nice beer that is in the middle ground(not too heavy, not too light).
Taste is good. It is the best thing about this beer. It is very malty and low on hops. Taste is pretty balanced and has a hint of sweet or nutty. Finish is a little plain.
