3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is a nice mahogany with a beige head. The aroma is pumpernickel bread, earthy, spicy hops, malted barley, and a bit of caramelized sugar. The mouthfeel is firm, with a medium-to-thin body and sustained carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter, with background sweetness and a dry finish. Peppery, bready, and caramel flavors are pretty evident. A really nice, balanced, tasty session beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: clear, Amber copper color with a light head that dissapates and no real lace. Caramel, malt aroma. Dry, not sour and low bitterness. Sweet flat caramel flavor. Nice malty profile. Very clean and balanced.
Lacks a little freshness. Good flavor but slightly heavy or sweet finish due to the lack of CO2.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 12 oz pour from refrigerated bottled into a handled mug. Leans on dry. White and a hint of sweet orange in the nose. Light citrus and pleasant malts in the taste. Medium body. Smooth. A drinkable go-to beer. I didn?t have this under idea circumstances, however, so I?d love to come back and try it again sometime.
Update: Trying it again. Rating actually stayed the same. Amber, clear, ample carbonation, slight head. Nose is bready and a little yeasty. Medium body and crisp. Taste is still light citrus and pleasant malts. Still a good drinkable go-to.
