look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a "stubby" 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear amber/gold in color, with an impressive two-inch head of off-white foam.
Aroma-Faint toasted malt and caramel
Taste-Pale malt, caramel note, nice soft mouthfeel, clean finish. A nice, casual lager, sessionable, and a step up from your macro-lagers. a nice 'gateway' brew for those just entering the craft beer scene.
