look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Copper tan/brown, Creamy 2 inch foamy head and tons of lacing.

Smell - Amber malts, caramel, added sugars, Some mild hops, bready/biscuit nose.

Taste - Pretty much right on flavor for a standard amber ale, malts are biscuit and caramel. Light floral hops add some minor bitter/dryness. Some added sugars and spices add some flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light malts coat the tongue along with some spices. Palate gets some sugars and more malts. The finish is weak and dry. The aftertaste is malty and a little hoppy.

Overall - Decent, very light, mild flavored, a good summer beer, or a great alternative to coors, or bud. The price is excellent, 7.99$ a 6'er. Nothing special, just a soild easy to drink beer.
