Can from Total wine Richmond south. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Not much on the nose. A bit malty on the tongue. I wish it was maltier if that’s a word. Finishes clean. Eh!

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. May have been suffering from palate blowout. Major extract tang to this - it tasted like a very poorly made homebrewed beer with no distinct style at all. I wouldn’t ever drink this again.
