3.48/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: This beer pours a dark amber with lots of highlights. The Slightly off white head didnt rise up much but maintained a thin layer on top. Plenty of beading inside and the lacing is very little.

Smell: The aroma is sweet caramel malts, light hop character and i'm even detecting a little fruitiness, almost orange. Simple in the nose , but very pleasing.

Taste: The flavors consist of more hops than I had imagined but nothing over the top. The malt seems to still have that caramel bite to it. Good overall, taste.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium bodied with good amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel was alot thinner than I expected almost watery.

Drinkability: The drinkability for me was very good. I would like to try this on a later date for sure. Other than the thin mouthfeel I would say this was a good go to beer.
