4.39/5  rDev +21.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Beer poured into nonic.

Two finger off white head

Dark brown in color with an amber hue at the top and the bottom.

Carbonation is slightly heavy, but not as heavy as a pilsner or BMC

Taste: fuggle, herb, sharpness, with an oaky finish

Aroma: oak and hop

Mouthfeel: great, not too thick, not too thin

Overall, this is a beer worth getting a six pack of. I strongly suggest giving Long Haul a try. It is more than just a session al.e

3.73/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Fairly small head leaves decent lacing. Color is amber. Looks alright.

Smell: Malt, hops, oak, vanilla.

Taste: Quite complex for a beer this easy to drink, there are flavors of oak, vanilla, fruit, malt, and hops. The beer finishes dry. Nothing is stellar here at all, but it is flavorful.

Mouthfeel: As it's a self-proclaimed "session beer", the mouthfeel is naturally on the thin side. Carbonation is moderate.

Overall: While it's not something I'll necessarily seek out, I respect it for what it is: a truly sessionable beer that manages to offer considerable flavor and some degree of complexity. Not everything works perfectly, but it's better than about 90% of beers in its ABV range and that are as thin, and that's saying something.
