look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Beautiful firm creamy head with excellent retention and sticky lines of lacing. Brew is a flat copper hue, transparent.

Dry earthy aroma, bitter, floral hint, bit of barrel.

Impressively smooth flavor: light crystal malt and bread, subdued hop flavor, wrapped in oak and vanilla. Bit of grass and earth.

Smoothness applies to the feel, as well, which is creamy with moderate sting.

I didn't know what to expect going into this, but this is s very easy drinking and satisfying beer. Very approachable, and tons of flavor for 5% ABV.
