3.34/5 rDev -12.3%
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

Good. Bready and easy drinking. Not much going on, but that's cool.
