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

Clear brown/copper color with lots of bubbles, okay lacing, reasonable head. Mostly malt with some hops on the smell with a touch or toffee. Taste is about the same, mostly malt though, bit toasty, like toasted bread, some toffee too, slight bit of floral hops at the end.

A solid beer but nothing to run to the store for, but I will gladly drink when on tap.
