look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: ½” thin off white head recedes rapidly, leaving light lacing. Significant amount of carbonation bubbles. Color is light brown and mostly clear.
Aroma: mild but pleasant aroma. A little hop spice but mostly malt – whole wheat bread, a little caramel and slight nuttiness.
Mouthfeel: fairly light bodied with heavy carbonation. Mostly watery with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: caramel and nut flavors are predominate. There is some hop spice in the finish. There is also a bready aspect—similar to yeast rolls.
Overall: a pleasant beer, not outstanding, but not bad at all. I would recommend giving this one a try. Would probably pair very well with cheddar cheese and some crackers.

12oz Bottle from the Wegmans Dewitt NY for 2$

Appearance - Copper colour with an average size fizzy off white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for close to 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, nuts

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with light hops. There is also some roasted/toasted notes and some nuts.

Overall - A solid example of the style. Tasty and very drinkable although not very exciting. Worth a try.
