Draft. Medium brown. Decent roasted malt flavor. Smallish off-white head. A little heavy in the bloat factor. Meh.

It was OK, seemed to have a metallic taste, not heavy in taste and aftertaste, rich redish color, not bad but not great either

Beautiful deep amber pour (almost expecting a Jurassic Park mosquito inside). Great thick beige head. Aroma faint of caramel and bread. Taste is wonderfully balanced with fruity/spicy hops and smooth caramel malts. Perfect bittersweet smooth drinkability for a rich session ale at 4.3 ABV.

Poured a copper, caramel color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy, khaki head. Thinned out rather quickly. Decent amount of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. No lacing. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.25)
Smelled roasty nuts, sugary caramel, toffee, light chocolate, honey, cereal, toast, some grass hops and light Citrus hops. Nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.00)
First taste reminded me of Honey Nut Cheerios. Also nuts, roasty bitter malts, earthy grass hops, light iced tea, toast, caramel, toffee, faint metallic notes and faint chocolate. (Taste - 3.63)
Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, nutty, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.38)
This was just an OK beer. I wouldn’t seek this out. (Overall - 3.50)
