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

Had a tasting at work and this is one of the beers I wanted to try.

A- Poured an amber redish color, with a mild lace of foam that quickly disappears. Mild amount of carbonation.

S- Had a nice malty smell, hints of caramel, a very mild toffee smell. Very mild hop aroma. A nice sweet smell.

T- Nice front of different malts right out of the gate. Had a good caramel taste with a touch of toffee. With a nice sweet finish.

M- Good drinkability, pretty crisp and refreshing. Smooth taste.

Overall- I was happy with it, did just what I thought it was going to do. Cheers!
