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.

3.26/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: A fairly dark amber with a head about one finger thick.

Aroma: Caramel malts, light citrus, a few piney bits, slightly biscuity and buttery.

Taste: Malty in the front, crisp mouthfeel, traces of sweet fruits. Piney and some citrus.

Notes: There is not too much to this one a straight forward drinkable beer. Cheers.
