Crystal clear and dark copper with a rapidly receding white head. Light toasty aromas are complimented by caramel notes, no hop aroma. The light flavors of this amber make it very approachable and drinkable but there is a slight metallic note, finishes with a delicate bitterness. Mouthfeel is very light and despite the lack of head there’s good carbonation. It could benefit from a more malt-forward profile, but this beer finishes clean and is extremely easy drinking.

Light malt and hop aroma. Bread like taste with a finish of hop. Not a bad beer. It would go good with pork or grilled chicken.

Draft in NOLA. Pours amber with white head. Aroma is of caramel and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Caramel malt, herbal hops and some grapes fill the mouth. Finish is medium, semi-dry. Not bad on tap.

12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Nose of yeast and toffee. Taste of lightly roasted malt, caramel and toffee. Not crisp but more malty and buttery. Slightly sweeter yet mouth feel remains light. An easy drinker with no bitterness. Bready aftertaste. Pleasant and enjoyable. Love the low ABV.

12 oz bottle pour. Pours a darker copper color with a thin head. Sweet, doughy aroma. Caramel malt flavors, pretty bready. A little sugary with medium carb. This beer wasn’t great, but not bad either. Glad I tried this.

As lagers go, not bad and much better than most readily available draught beers in the USA. Bland taste, OK carbonation.

Flavors aren’t offensive, just really bland. Light notes of caramel and grains. Very faint hops.
