Had a mild hop aroma, probably from the centennial. Color was a dark clear brown. Taste was mediocre and not too complex. Fades into an unruly hoppy bitterness in the finish.

12 oz bottle shared with my buddy Nick. Light brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is caramel malt with some slight roast and chocolate. Flavor pretty much identical, the caramel malt being the most prominent feature. Slightly dry finish.
