look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance is a dark amber color with a small amount of foamy tan head.

Smell is dominated by caramel malts.

Taste is similar, nice and sweet without being cloying, The beer finishes with just a touch of hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and very smooth on the palate.

Overall an excellent amber lager.
