Bottle ( 12oz ). Shared with blankboy and garthicus. Clear copper pour, very large fluffy lasting off-white head (4-). Dry, slightly sour aroma - lightly fruity and midly floral-bitter - taste follows, a little less sour. Light, mildly acidic mouthfeel, solid carbonation, and a dry finish. Ehhh.

I liked it! Supried to see a rich brown color when poured from the bottle. Nice medium malt mouthfeel. Roasted grains and a bit of nut flavor. Even just a touch of hops.
