Notes/Commercial Description:
Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored "alt" style beer notably well balanced.

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

A - From a 22oz bomber it pours 2 fingers thick tan head that lingers for a good while, but only leaves a small amount of lacing. It is clear and amber in color.

S - A sweet malty aroma with traces of fruit.

M - A light-medium bodied beer. Has a creamy, richer feel to it.

T - Begins with a biscuity malt, followed by some sweeter caramel malts. The hops just barely shine through at the end and then disappear, leaving little bitterness.

A pretty decent brew, that is easy to drink. There's nothing too complex going on, but it makes for a great session beer.
