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

Medium brown look, clear, with a decent head, looks like a american brown ale, but with more heft.

Deep malt nose, nothing stands out, but solid. Roasty, with notes of bread and earthiness, some notes of wood.

Taste is very deep for the abv, with a solid backbone and a nice balanced finish. Nothing great, but good complex tastes between the malt, some hops, and the French Oak. I can see this as a session beer to keep around, rivals their Domain Dupage which I like as well. Nice keeper for the abv.

Medium heft in the mouth, lightly carbonated, just a decent drinker for the seasons between summer and winter. Very drinkable, one to keep around as a regular. A very decent Bitter from this side of the pond.

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.
