Nice color, a good beer for drinking everyday, has decent flavor that lasts all the way to the end.
The big 22 ounce can is a bit of a surprise but I had no problem finishing the can.
I would put the overall appeal of this beer as equal to Sam Adam's Boston Lager.
Moat did a great job with this beer, which I had not previously seen but found at Trader Joe's.

24oz can (!)

Gotta love the packaging for this beer. I could do without the sexualized catchphrases on the label, but otherwise, the bomber-sized can is badass, for sure.

Pours a very clear reddish brown. Pleasing color, but modest head. Okay lacing, not much retention. (3.5)

Aroma is clean. Caramel, light ester, no hop. (3)

Flavor is reliant on caramel malt rather than brown and/or chocolate malt. Tangy and spicy hops supporting in the background. Moderate bitterness, toffee flavor lingers nicely. Mouthfeel is a touch on the watery side, honestly. Medium carbonation. (3, 2.5)

Brown ale by default. Not a great example of the style, but nevertheless drinkable. Lacks malt depth. (3.5)

Big Can > Sensory Pils Glass

A - Pours a nice clear brown with one figner of soapy white head, medium lacing.
S - Aroma is nutty caramel and bready malt, a touch of earthy scents, but the malt is dominant.
T - Nice toasted caramel and biscuit malt with a touch of bitterness.
M - Mouth is great on this, creamy and smooth, medium, not heavy.
O - Good brown, could use more in taste and aroma, but the feel is very smooth and creamy.
