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

12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a deep amber with light tan head.

Nose is extraordinarily malty - honey, biscuit, and sweet toffee.

Taste is rather light and smooth - less than I expected with the nose. Lots of biscuit and malt, a slight amount of grain, and a bit of booze.

Low carbonation with a sweet but tight finish.

Overall this is an okay beer, but it's nothing great. It's well-rounded but I wouldn't seek it out and will probably give away my second bottle.
