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.

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

A-Clear amber, almost ruby, one finger head, slightly sticky

S-Malt, some grass, slight oak, caramel, very malt forward, not much else though.

T-Poor balance, there are oak, malt, caramel flavors all fighting with one another. No bitterness, the poor balance is throwing everything else off. Some vanilla.

M-Light, slight to no carbonation, tad watery as well.

O-The lack of balance really hurts this beer. Would not recommend.
