3.45/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Very nice hazy bronze color with lots of little bubbles floating to the top. Poured a decent head that what an off white color. Leaves some lacing around the glass.

Smell- Roasty malts and caramel.

Taste- Kind of a sweet. It has a very mild hop flavor that balances out the sweetness. I get a taste of caramel or slight honey. I guess it has a slight roast or biscuit flavor.

Overall- I think this is a pretty good beer and I would buy a six pack of it to keep in the fridge or I would get it on tap.

Serving type: bottle
