3.65/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

L: tawny-hued liquid with a slight haze... open foam with a sudsy surface - doesn't quite fizz out right away

S: roasty, broth-y aromas - almost like caramelized onions and reddish bread crust - French onion soup?!... crisp sulfur-y lager yeast in the background... the Munich and more so the darker, amber/brown-ish malt comes more to the fore in time

T: mildly-burly melanoidin in control, bit of a bittersweet middle, balancing mild caramel-y malt with dried-leafy hop and dry toasty grain flavors... toasted grain carries the finish and aftertaste with a subtle apple sweetness lingering in the back... sip after sip reveals this to be a slightly dirty, woody, toast-forward brew - mostly clean and not all that far off from a more rugged, chiseled, and robust version of Yuengling's flagship amber lager...

F: perhaps slightly on the lighter side of medium-bodied... marble-smooth flow with a flat and dry finish that snaps off a touch

O: a nice beer that tastes remarkably of the season, but is short on personality... quite the neutral American malt profile as it lacks the depth brought on by Old World ingredients and techniques (decoction?)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: clear; bronze colored; 1 finger off white head that receded to a thin collar; nice lacing;

S: caramel with a touch of spice;

T: a little nutty up front; slightly metallic toward the end; moderate bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; creamy carbonation; dry finish;

O: flavor just didn't make me want more;
