Wow, another pretty ruby and caramel colored beer, but how you get such attractiveness out of something with only 2.8% and 12ibu, hey, I guess its easy when you know how. Bready and sweet aroma. Those descriptors will be all over this review, because its a rather simplistic beer.

Taste, lots of caramel. And a bitter tang with it that isn't derived from hops. Already thinking this truly is table beer. I only wish there was such a style designation on beeradvocate, it would make more sense than any of the other options present. Bitter, sweet, caramel, toffee and plenty of breadiness.

A pretty cool beer. For me, being a west coast raised beer advocate, its not going to supplant SNPA as my go to beer, but it definitely fills a niche for those who have to do housework on the weekends, instead of going out and tailgating/partying like a real man! Ha, I kid, I kid, its that new Wolfpack ad campaign about Saturdays being for football!

A dark session belgian table beer, ok. Red and brown, bright appearance, nice looking, pretty even. Aroma was sweet breads, rye, beer.

Lots of caramel malt flavor in a small beer delivery vessel. Toffee breadiness in the mouthfeel. Its a neat little beer, definitely has a place at the table.
