look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear amber colored head with about an inch of an off white head. Doesn't seem to be a lot of carbonation going on.

Smell is a bit nutty, hints of caramel and bread as well.

Taste starts out a bit sweet, like a caramel type of sweetness. Little bit f nuttiness and bread, finishes with a bit of hop bitterness that lingers a bit.

Nothing too special about the feel, nothing bad either. Could use a little more carbonation.

Not a bad beer, not a great beer, kind of an inoffensive one that is still several cuts above mass market beers. When you consider the price, as I spent roughly 50 cents per bottle, it is actually a really good value. This would be a great beer for a party when you have people timid about craft beer, and want to give them something a bit better than the usual mass markets, and don't want to spend a lot.
