look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle to a SA. Perfect pint glass

A- pours a rich golden amber with a solid 1 finger head crystal clear with some visible carbonation

S- sweet caramel malts, some butterscotch, some bready notes

M- toasted grains, sweet malts, caramel, butterscotch, slight toffee. There is a sweetness the surrounds this beer, and a grainy slightly bitter finish

M- light bodied, highly carbonated, tingly, clean.

O- not bad, always wanted to try this, and now I did... It's not bad, it's drinkable but has a macro-feel to it a little too clean a little too funky, too artificially sweet. Just a malty sugary ale that's easy to drink, it's okay.
