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

Pours a rich, murky brown. Mostly hazy. The head is very lacking. Not much there and what is there doesn't last long. A bit of lace.

Not a bad scent, just not a good scent, there just isn't much there. Some standard issue malt mixed with some caramel malt. Nose is of old school hop varieties, which I guess is kind of the point. Just middle of the line.

The taste is lagerish, but with some flavor. Caramelly taste dominates with some earthy, floral hop notes. No help from the sessionable ABV level.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and almost creamy. More on the savory side than anything. Only faint bitterness deep in the swallow. No alcohol heat. Malty sweetness throughout.

It's just above average. Not really what I'm used to with this brewer, so slightly disappointing. Everything is muted.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a stange:

Pours orange to light copper with a creamy head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of brown sugar, some musty notes and a restrained fruitiness.

The taste is of light steely caramel, a coppery bitterness, some mustiness (not quite skunky - but approaching it). There is a mild general fruitiness mixed in. Tastes better than described.
Seems a bit imbalanced towards the hops, but malt does grow as it progresses.

Initial fizz quickly settles, though some water mixes in in the middle. Still, it is smooth enough to be satisfactory.

I liked it more what I scored it than described it. A hoppier version of the style. All in all, a good brew.
