look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Golden yellow in color with an amber hue. Poured with a short fizzy foam that quickly dissipated. Bready and caramel malt aromas are dominant with faint herbal hop and buttery notes. Medium bodied with a slightly oily feel up front followed by a light tangy feel through the middle. Burnt caramel and bready malt flavors up front followed by light herbal hop flavors that try very hard to produce a crisp snap that this style is known for, but it falls a bit short. Finishes with bready, caramel malt aftertaste.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours gold with good clarity and some bubbles are seen rising to the top. A fat head of white foam that leaves a ring and some lacing. Nose is not remarkable. It's clean. Not even too much malty scent. Just a bit of malt scent and somemild hop grass. No fruity esters at all. Faint bit of musky spice as it warms. The taste is smooth mild and very even. Hops balnce this one unobtrusively for a breaddy but light taste. The mouthfeel is medium and has some good bite from carbonation. The spice is as much a part of the mouthfeel as are the bubbles and I like that. The malt is breaddy but not too sweet. Finishes clean and dry with no fruit flavors at all. There is a bit of sweet grass in the drink but it too is very mild. The hops become a bit floral and perfumey as it drinks and it tickles the back palate with that spice and dry bread.

I really like it.
