Draught. Pours a clear amber color with very little head on there. Nose is very malt forward, but pretty light. Slight bits of caramel and toast coming through, with a hop bite. Taste is slightly sweet up front, with that bitter bite to it, and a touch of caramel throughout.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle- I hope this isn’t old, these are supposed to come out in May, right? Pours clear red amber with a thin soapy white head, aroma is dirty syrupy malt, caramel. The taste is all caramel malt, but not as good as it sounds, kind of sickly sweet. The body is thin, carbonation is medium low. It tastes like a sweeter version of an Oktoberfest.
