I got this single 12oz brown bottle as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. It has today's best before date on it, so I figured I better drink this one up right away.
The beer poured a cloudy golden/orange color with a nice 3-finger white head that hung around awhile and left some spotty lacing. After reading other reviews, I am curious as to why half of us got a cloudy pour and the other half say this beer is clear. I wonder what accounts for the difference.
The beer has a nice bready malt smell to it with a lot of fruit in it as well.
Nice mix of sweetness and soft bitterness here. Caramel and vanilla are the predominant flavors, but there is also some oak woodiness and some soft but spicy hop bitterness for balance. (Just 27 IBU's) The fruit I picked up in the smell also lingers in the background.
Light bodied with low carbonation.
This is a very unique tasting beer, well worth a try.

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.
