3.53/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours out a clear dark amber/golden color with a slight head.

Nose consists of malts, sweet caramel, and an underlying of hops. Some hints of bread/biscuit can be detected as well.

Taste is balanced with malts and hops with the bitterness of the hops finishing it out. Caramel undertones ride underneath it all. A little bit on the sweet side, but the bitterness helps balance it out.

Mouthfeel is medium with quite a bit of carbonation hitting the palate.

A good tasty balanced beer. Reminds me of an ESB, but just a little sweeter.

3.03/5  rDev -19.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Copper gold with a nice medium white head.

S - Very malty, can't get any hops or anything other than barley malt, really.

T - Buttery breadiness to the malt.Very slight hops and then citrus at the end. My palate is too accustomed to bitter hops to agree with other reviewers about the bitterness of this one.

M - Smooth with favorable carbonation.

O - Overall I'm meh on this one. Expecting a bit more but I can't really be wowed by lagers anymore it seems. Take that as you will beer-anti-hipster-hipsters.
