4.13/5  rDev +19%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Beautiful brown amber, clear, 2 finger light tan head, some patchy lacing.

Smell - Black Cherry (which I thought was surprising and wonderful) , molasses, sweet malt.

Taste - Roasted sweetness followed by few notes of tanginess. Finish is mild hop bitterness. Fairly neutral aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium weight, creamy, good carbonation.

Drinkability - A lighter body and fairly complex nose makes this beer very drinkable.

Overall I was very surprised by this beer. I liked it a lot. More than most reviewers I guess...Very tasty and easy going. A little lighter version of the Dunkel style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass

Pour: hazy dark amber with an off white head that disappears and leaves nearly no lacing

Nose: light struck, which i was not expecting since it came from a brown bottle. Once I got past that, it was fairly pleasant. Malty, no hops, hint of caramel, toasty. Not a ton of depth, but not bad.

Taste: more of the same. Malty, no hop flavor, but some bitterness to keep it from getting too sweet. Easy to drink

Mouthfeel: a little watery, which happens with lower alcohol dunkel beers. Nothing lingers. Has a mouthfeel of the session beer that it is.

Overall: pretty good beer. Not a ton to it, but it's a session beer. Need to grab another one to find out if it was light struck, or if I'm losing my mind.

It has a feel like that of a saison and the color of a pale ale. At first, it reminded me of wheat beers and hefeweizen beers. But the slightly astringent and dry aftertaste were similar to the Springstreet Saison from Avondale Brewery. This would be great with a light tasting, baked appetizer.
