3.48/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours into a pint glass with a medium thick head and a reddish-brown/ dark copper color. Looks a little more carbonated than normal.
Odor is light. Has floral and some toffee notes.
Taste has a floral hit right from the beginning. Some malty notes appear near the end.
Mouth feel is light and pretty carbonated. It is a little light on the tongue and seems to disappear a little fast.
Overall still a pretty darn good beer.

3.73/5  rDev +3.9%
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.
