look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A - Reddish-copper hue with a thin white creamy-looking head which dissolves rapidly, leaving a thin lacing.
S - Earthy, bready, a little musty. Aromas mostly faint.
T - Initial tastes of sweet malt, biscuits, and buttered toast, which become more prevalent as it warms. Mild fruity hops kick in about halfway through adding a bit balance, but they fade out quickly. Mostly dry finish with the sweet malts lingering a bit longer than anything else.
M - Lively carbonation gives good drink-ability, but I found it a bit much for the style.
O - A fairly solid offering, just not very complex. Like many SA seasonal beers, I find that one usually-better-than-average characteristic (in this case malt) dominates the flavor profile, with not much else going on. This proves no exception.
