Not for me. Just Ok on draft. This could be the problem. Normally I drink 7% ABV or better. This was disappointing for me. The bottle version of this brew tasted better a few months ago.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Look - amber color, two finger head with good lacing.
Smell - biscuits, toasted malts, bananas, brown sugar. on the sweet side, but in a good way.
Taste - heavy on the toasted malts with a clean finish. simple but really delicious.
Feel - light/medium body, medium carbonation
Overall - nice beer. easily enjoyable by all.

This is a damn near perfect beer (in my opinion). I do like craft beers (these guys are big but still craft, correct?) but I am not a huge hop head like every brewery seems to be. IPA this IPA that. So many IPAs. I do enjoy lagers, ales, pale ales, and IPAs but this beer this the best. Love the taste, got a malt backbone and a little bite from the hops. Love, love, love this beer. Can't recommend it enough.
