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

A - Pours a honey color with an amber hue. Has a small 1/2 finger offwhite head with little retention and no lacing

S - light aromas. Fairly sweet smelling. Mainly caramel with hints off coffee

T - Much like the aroma. Sweet and malty. Caramel up front with a nice nutty finish. Hints of coffee are present throughout as well

M - Light to Medium body. Has a fairly dry finish. Smooth drinking for sure

O - An easy drinking brown. This would bea good beer to introduce someone to craft beer with. Definately sessionable. Would be enjoyable on a hot day.

Pours to a half inch head that falls to a thin ring of foam. No lacing. Color is a deep copper-amber. Aroma is very German, with soft noble hops and sweet decocted malts. Flavor is balanced and easygoing with sweet and nutty malts perfectly balanced with noble hops. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is good. A very tasty and accurate Alt.
