2.03/5  rDev -39.8%
look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a clear dark golden color. Very thick off white head, dissipates very slowly.
S: very faint toasted grains, absolutely nothing else...fail
T : Starts light, watery. A super sweet bread and corn syrup flavor. no hops at all. Pretty damn terrible really. Way way too sweet with nothing else there. Finishes skunky and smooth.
M : medium bodied despite the early wateryness. Carbonation is all right, carries the flavor nicely.

Way too sweet. No depth or character or anything in this beer. Fake sugar taste and no aroma. No thanks, never again

Serving type: bottle

3.54/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with long lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of Noble hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Grassy hops, bready malt and some caramel combine on the palate. Long finish becomes dry. Overall this is OK brew.

3.73/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: pours a clear brown-amber, with antique-white foam, fair carbonation.

S: buttery/toasty malt scent, light sweetness--caramel and hops, even lighter essence of spices.

T: begins clean, malt notes are buttery, toasty, and sweet, well-complemented by the sweet floral hop notes lingering into a lightly spicy, but very mild finish.

O: Well balanced and easy to drink, definitely will be looking to have this again soon.
