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

Appearance: Clear, deep reddish-brown, with a large, cream-colored head, which retains fairly well. Thick Belgian-like lacing adorns hte glass walls. The carbonation is moderate, with some small streams of slow-rising bubbles.

Aroma: Lots of toasted malts, dark bread, and caramel. The hops are rather faint.

Taste: Lots of roasted malt at the open, followed by a little caramel and toffee. As the taste progresses, it segues towards dark bread. There is a slight burnt note at the finish, and a very restrained herbal hop note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant example, would make a nice session beer, although its a little pricey at $7.99 a six-pack.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.

Served unto a pint.

Appearance: Dark amber, might look opaque depending on your lighting but it is definitely clear and not your dark beer. White head comes off the body maybe 1/8" almost nada.

Smell: Weak, like you feel the dry hops but before the glass leaves your nose it disappears.

Taste: Dry hoppy feel to it. But light and smooth.

Mouth: Medium to heavy carbonation easy to drink and makes it easier to indugle in.

Overall: good every day beer which isn't too complicated at all but easy to drink and even easier to keep in your fridge. Salud!
