I would say the best thing about this beer is it's excellent mouthfeel and taste after a spell of outdoor activities where you need a good beer to warm you up. Really good pickup if you're planning to go out that night, grab a couple tough ends, play some darts and prepare yourself for a night where you can easily drink ontop of this beer or can even add to it's happiness. I have found myself quickly going from this beer to something like gin or tequila mixed drinks very smoothly withy no harsh transitions and if you plan on switching into different beer, it's taste is really forgiving in switching into cheaper beer. Overall great for a relaxer after a long day or a quick pick me up with not too much commitment
