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

12oz bottle served in a little hotel glass. ideal on that count but you have to do what you have to do sometimes. review from notes of 04/18/10.

pours a clear amber/orange tone with a frothy off-white head. a bit of patchy lacing is evident; middling retention. malt-forward nose with a bready, biscuit-y character to it and a touch of floral hops in the background. decent aroma, nothing extraordinary.

flavor mostly follows the nose. again, biscuity, bready malt with a few subtle, secondary hoppy notes... it does have a certain uniqueness to it. reasonably enjoyable; a solid B range beer. medium-light bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.

overall this is a solid if unspectacular offering. hits the spot when you're in vegas and low on options.
