3.65/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

5.3% ABV
OG 12.2° Plato
40-45 IBUs
Served in a pint glass at Stub & Herb's.

Appearance 4/5
Clear dark copper colored with an off-white creamy head. Good retention, good lacing.

Aroma 2/5
Nondescript aroma with some sweet malt character and an odd sharpness, like a pilsner.

Taste 4/5
Crisp taste full of earthy hop flavor and good bitterness. Clean finish, bitter aftertaste that doesn't linger for too long. More malts and perhaps more hops will make this beer better, but the unoffensive character (?) might get lost.

Mouthfeel 4.5/5
Crisp, but too crisp at times. Very refreshing, and not cloying at all, as one would expect.

Drinkability 4/5
Very drinkable, but needs either more malts and hops, or a lower ABV.

Other
Good, but not exceptional.

Serving type: on-tap

3.59/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.
Dark brown color, bit of head. Smells like hops and malt.
Tastes like a pale ale with a bit more caramel than usual. Bitter finish. Lingers a bit.
Different than the pale ales I'm used to. Could use more hops.
Decent enough I guess.
