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

12oz bottle served in a SA perfect pint glass.

pours a clear, deep amber tone with a finger and a half of light beige head; modest retention and lacing.

nose is on the mild side, but i get elements of caramel malt and a touch of hops - can't distinguish much else. a bit disappointing. flavor is an improvement, though not a huge one. there's a bit of a metallic note that i don't much care for, but the malts come through a bit stronger as well as some bready yeasts and notes of hops. not as good as i remember this being in past years.

mouthfeel is nothing to write home about. sort of thin, medium carbed. drinkability is up there on the basis of being able to knock back a few; the question is whether or not you'd want to. an OK beer but i think there are many better takes on the style out there.
