look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: orange-red color. Decent head, for a lighter beer.

S: Sweet and malty, but not very strong.

T: Lots of that sweet malt again, on the tip of the tongue. The perfect amount of hops-- not too much, well-balanced. Develops a nutty taste after awhile.

M: Smooth and creamy. Good mix of carbonation.

D: I could definitely drink this all night. This is the one Sam Seasonal I really miss when it isn't being sold.
