look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a crystal clear medium copperish amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint deep golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a thick film covering about half of the surface of the beer and a mottled thin film covering the remainder of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of caramel and toasted malts with a hint of earthy + spicy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate amount of caramel, bready, and toasted malts with just a slight hint of sweetness. That is followed by very light flavors of earthy and spicy hops which contribute a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Easy to drink but definitely not one of the better examples of the style or even more interesting. Don't think that I will grab this one again as it is just fairly mundane. Alcohol is pretty well hidden.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on October 4, 2014.

The pour is medium amber with an orange tone. Short-lived head.

The aroma brings out some toasted grain qualities and clean hops but nothing is very forward.

The body is around medium.

The taste is not very threatening. Toasted malts, sweetness, and a bitter finish. This is a fairly ordinary beer although it is easy to drink.

Everything about this was OK - taste, OK, slight after taste. Body kept some less than OK components at the 3 line overall.
