About 2 months past best buy date. I won't hold that against this.
Poured into bar wine glass from my father-in -law. May he RIP on this wonderful fall Sunday with all sorts of football on the tube.
Light and thin looking as would be expected for a session ale. Brownish and off-white head that takes its time settling out.
Soft malt aroma with even lighter hops and hints of the oak aging. Pleasant.
A little tickle on the tongue and soft malt flavors. Dries out quite a bit on the finish and is quite long. Nice streak of English hop flavor through the middle and a contributing lingering bitterness on the finish. More of the oak seemed in the aroma.
Bigger body than anticipated. Probably enhance somewhat by the bigger than normal of very soft carbonation for style. Nonetheless a nice mouth feel.
This is a solid beer. Nice complexity for a beer clearly labeled "session beer". Nicely done. Good fall beer for afternoons of getting stuff done.

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.
