T: Toasted malts, caramel, dough, light fruity character, lots of dough.

M: Light medium body, medium high foamy carbonation, dry powdery finish.

O: Very fresh, well done amber. Nothing outstanding, rather a fresh lightly flavourful brew. Got at Asheville at the wine store near Wicked Weed.

Although this beer is OK for appearance and smell, taste is just OK, the 3.7 alcoholic content barely rates this as a beer. I gave it a rating as a one because I want my beer to be real beer and not just a beverage. It didn't rate high enough in the other areas to consider it decent. So I gave it a low rating. Because beer should be beer and 3 % alcohol doesn't equate to beer in my book! Have you tried the rating scale on weak beverages? I'm from NC and I truly wanted to rate this beer higher but honestly I can't.
