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

Appearance: Thick, heavy, brown syrup. A bit of a red shimmer as well. Very pretty. Looks like a nice session.

Smell: Caramel malts with a hint of spice. A would have liked this a bit stronger.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Great flavors! Tastes a bit like Fat Tire Amber and a slightly hopped pale ale. Very nice balance. Mouthfeel, while filling, doesn't stand up to flavors, which are subtly balanced.

Overall Drinkability: Would make a good session.
