4.43/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a nice looking light amber, very clear. Good size head that don't last too long. Ladder-like lacing down the glass. Good aroma of hops, not that strong but definitely worth savoring. Taste was very good. Definite hops but overall smooth,balanced taste so that the hops are not overpowering. Also detected some hint of spices. The mouthfeel was rich, carbonation about right. I was surprised at the 6.0 ABF when I logged on (didn't see it on the bottle). I would consider the drinkability of this beer very high. If this beer was generally available on tap in Tidewater VA, I would rate it above Yeungling but still below SNPA (my staple beers to ask for). This would also be a good beer to help de-program a BMC drinker.
