Crushed with Jakebra. These guys just seem to specialize in mild yet inoffensive brews. Mostly sweet, but an okay hop presence in the finish. Drinkable.

Sampled at the Second Cellar Reduction. Pours a clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is light dogfood, dark earthy malt. Malty backbone with some citrus and hops. Well balanced I suppose, but not that enjoyable. On the bad side of average.
