look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

Pours a lovely clear medium amber with a one-finger head that leaves some spotty lacing.

The aroma is full of yeasty bread, crackers and caramel with a hint of candied fruit.

The taste i loaded with caramel and bread with a hint of spicy hops as well. A little lingering peppery finish is very nice.

Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky.

Overall, an excellent beer that is very refreshing and tasty.
