look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Poured from a bottle into 8 oz taster. From a 12-bottle taster pack. 2 months prior to expiration.

Appearance- Golden, on the darker, richer side of Golden. Clearly there is a bit of caramel malt in play here. Finger of foam that dissipate in less than a minute. Sharp, tight carbonation.

Smell- Toast with a touch of sour.

Taste- There we go. Everything balances out there, just a pinch of tartness (middle of the tongue) quickly washed over with a creamy, malty caramel- not as sweet as an amber, the hops still dominate (especially for a lager). Style-wise this is on point. Delicious. Aftertaste of fresh country bread with roasted crust.

Mouthfeel- much larger than the beer would indicate. Keeps your mouth interested.

Overall- Waited too long to try this delicious beer.
