Bottle poured into a chalice

A: Pours a dark amber, copper color with a fizzy head that takes on a shade of dingy white, like dirty underwear.

S: Aroma is lightly sweet with malt and a touch of peach fruitiness, almost Belgian but subtle all around.

T/M: Carbonation is pretty high and the fizz lingers on the tongue for a good bit yet the flavor is pretty light beyond that, like an amber mixed with an American lager. Just a hint of bitterness balances out the faint maltiness and finishes clean.

It's pretty typical for a session but is still kind of bland.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Fairly small head leaves decent lacing. Color is amber. Looks alright.

Smell: Malt, hops, oak, vanilla.

Taste: Quite complex for a beer this easy to drink, there are flavors of oak, vanilla, fruit, malt, and hops. The beer finishes dry. Nothing is stellar here at all, but it is flavorful.

Mouthfeel: As it's a self-proclaimed "session beer", the mouthfeel is naturally on the thin side. Carbonation is moderate.

Overall: While it's not something I'll necessarily seek out, I respect it for what it is: a truly sessionable beer that manages to offer considerable flavor and some degree of complexity. Not everything works perfectly, but it's better than about 90% of beers in its ABV range and that are as thin, and that's saying something.
