Surprisingly good for a chain restuarant brew.

2013-2014 vintage, could have let it age longer...but doubt it matters much. This is a chain restaurant brewery beer...they just aren't much better than the pseudo crafts from the adjunct brewers.

Overall, not a bad beer, but not a great one...it's average. Here's the oddity, I received it in a 'Rare Beer of the Month' sampler. Usually those tend toward rare, as in hard to get (I could have run out to BJ's and grabbed a bottle at Christmas myself) and great to awesome. Oh well. I'm not going to do the ASTMO thing on this one.

The beer looks like a better than average beer, the aroma is subdued, the flavors begin to show some character (but not much, some malts coming through, no distinctive yeast, a little spiciness) with a medium mouthfeel accentuated with some good carbonation.

I can't find anything truly bad with this, but there is nothing here that screams "Go find more." Glad I had it, now I don;t need to have it again.
