A: Pours a medium copper in copper with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that reduces somewhat leaving a thin film covering the surface of the beer as well as a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate lacing is observed.

S: Hints of caramel sweetness in a malt dominated smell with toasted malts being the highlight.

T: Slightly sweet with the caramel, toasted, and biscuit malt backbone. Well balanced with the hops as there is little detectable bitterness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: Pretty easy to drink and definitely a sessionable beer. While this beer is not really anything special, it is a good and easy to approach first craft beer for newer folks to the scene - I know a lot of folks that had this as a stepping stone from BMC to craft.
