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

12oz bottle served in a mug.

pour reveals an clear amber body; light beige head builds to about a finger and a half but dissipates fairly quickly. patchy lacing evident.

nose is fairly tame but there are noticeable tones of caramel malt with some citrusy hops in the background; some spices are perceivable. for the most part the aroma is substantiated by the flavor profile. no big surprises: caramel malts, subdued hops, and spices. all and all a decent, quaffable beer. nothing more, nothing less.

low to medium bodied moutfeel with average carbonation. the first one drinks well, then boredom starts to set in.
