this one was all over the place .. . pours a medium tan .. light foamers .. . why do women soccer players just not have tits? .. light brown bread, un sweetened maple syrup, and light nuts .. . light mouth, muddled finish - just average .. . . "Spin-off!" Is there any word more thrilling to the human soul?

draft pours out dark reddish brown with nice foamy white head. the aroma was of roasted malt and some slight chocolate. the flavor is quite nice the body is rather light but yet refreshing the roasted malts and chocolate come out. can taste that bit of nuttiness. very decent beer.
