3.55/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a well-defined head. Color is dark amber.

Smell is lightly sweet with a definite malt presence.

First sip is a mix of malty sweetness with a subtle level of hops that really gives it a kick without making it too overpowering. As a beer, this is one of the more balanced in terms of overall mouthfeel, making it one of the easier drinking than some of the more extreme choices that are out there.

Sam Adam beers were the first craft beers that I ever had, and this one is a fine example of what they are capable of. Very nice.
