look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz poured into pint glass

A-poures an orange color with a pretty big head the way i poured it. laces all the way down, nice

S-faint malts with very little else, maybe some yeast

T/M-unoffensive malty beer with a slight hop taste near the end. medium bodied with a normal amount of carbonation.

O-very decent. this is not meant to be extravagant, its their "go to beer" and it does a good job as just that
