dark copper brown pour with a thin off white head. it smells a bit sweet... toffee, malt and strawberries. the palate is a bit sugary but surprisingly good... caramel malty, toffee, biscuit, grassy, earthy hops and a dry alcoholic finish... the abv% is not unpleasant, it is just noticeable and thinning. . the medium body is crisp and soft due to ample carbonation. 5/3/7/3/12/3.0

Sample at brew pub. Aroma was somewhat well just stale something couldn’t get a good wiff of anything. Amber body with decent head. Bland flavor with some mild toffee in the mix. Odd brew.

Bif (1563) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 31, 2011
On tap at the Draft House. Served a dark amber color with a small head and some lacing. Mild aroma of caramel sweetness, fresh grain and a hint of citrus. Flavor of some caramel sweetness, fresh grain with a mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp and clean. Easy drinker, good for a few. Fits well with watching sports.
