3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle, slightly past the 2013 best by date, served in a lager glass. Pours clear, deep amber colored, with a moderate size but exceptionally creamy head. The head has good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Lots of carbonation is visible.
S: caramel with some piney and earthy hop, but with a metallic tone.
T: Much better than the aroma, but too mild. Caramel malt up front fades as the earthy hops build towards the mildly hoppy and slightly bitter finish.
M: crisp; light-medium body.
O: Decent, at least after it warms up a bit.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: 1.5” off white head recedes and leaves light lacing. Moderate carbonation bubbles stream through the mostly clear amber/copper brew.
Aroma: fairly mild – bready malts are most prominent, some caramel, and a little hop spice.
Mouthfeel: fairly light bodied and watery, with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: whole wheat bread, mild citrus (orange peel), caramel, and a slight saltine cracker flavor.
Overall: Not a bad beer, nothing too exciting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing to recommend here. Not a drain-pour, but just so average that it does not make sense to waste your time drinking it.

This beer poured surprisingly creamy. The flavor was a bit malty and creamy but really not much to it. Better than I anticipated though.
