Poured into pint glass

S- Spicy, bready malt

A- Caramel amber, thick head, great lacing

T- Toasted malt, sweet, citrus, hop presence in middle

M- Light to medium body, good carbonation, creamy feel

O- Definitely a big step up from your typical choices at bars. Wouldn't go out of my way to get it at a restaurant or to tailgate though. Overall above average
