Slight mixture of red and brown colouring, depending on the light around youl, generally pleasing to the eye. Mild bitterness, distinct taste of bread for some strange reason, but still pleasing.

Poured a reddish-muddy-brown; medium to small white head. Aroma was light; caramel and nutty. Good for the style, just don’t like the style. Lightly sweet malt. Minimal hops. Nutty. Easy enough to drink, but very bland for me.

Poured a caramelly brown that was slightly cloudy. The head was one finger, off-white and a little bit fluff. Decent lacing. The aroma was a bit on the thin side, a bit of roasted malt came through, but that was about it. The flavor was roasted malt, a hint of sweetness (I wish I had tasted more) and slightly bitter finish. Decent.
