look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Had a few from a bottle poured into a glass.

A: Very pretty reddish color, kind of a red/copper, but very little head. Light lacing.

S: Slightly malty with a little hop, toasty, maybe a little nutty

T: I've had better. It's ok, kinda malty with a slightly bitter hop finish, but not much there. The taste lingers. It has some sweet/vanilla notes which are pleasant on the finish, but broken up quickly when the bitter comes in at the last second. The beer also loses flavor quickly as it warms up. Even just over the course of five minutes, as it comes into the 50-55 degree range, it loses most of it's flavor.

M: Sub-par, carbonation is either too high or it's a bit watered down. Can't quite put my finger on.

Overall, I'd accept the drink if offered to or bought for me, but I wouldn't search this one out to buy it. I mean, it's still beer, and I'll be sure to not waste it, but I wouldn't buy it.
