I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear amber color with a half a fingers worth of head. Tiny amount of lacing.

Smell- Aromas of bread and caramel malt with a hint of floral hops.

Taste- Caramel malt sweetness at the start with some flavors of bread and grain. Very faint hop presence.

Mouthfeel- On the light end of medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation.

Overall- An easy drinking beer, but it doesn't jump out at you. If the flavors were a little bolder this would be a great beer.
