look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The appearance of this beer is a classic red amber color. My beer poured with no head or lacing at all...(glass not as clean as it should be?)

The smell is very nice. A well balanced, toasted malt scent that dominated the brew. It is followed by a mix of subtle spices and a hint of hops, but nothing bitter.

Taste is well balanced between the sweet, toasted malt, the spices and the hops which create a soft, easy to drink brew.

The mouthfeel is good up front but as the drink continues the carbonation takes over and is too heavy. Too much for me.

Overall the beer has a good smell and taste but still needs some refining in order to get the wild aspects in check or to run with them completely...still better than most. Above average brew.
