3.34/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: dark amber in color with a short head that breaks down quickly.

Smell: caramel and some fruit sweetness comes through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, bread, ripe fruits, and a bit of earthiness are the main flavors. The bitterness is soft and takes a back seat here.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish. Short lasting aftertaste.

Overall: a mild flavored ale that is a bit tame overall, but it is very easy to consume.

Serving type: on-tap
