It is mahogany with a small, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and the flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel and a little nuts. Actually it is quite OK.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown with a small light tan head. The ring of head stays a long time. Some minor lacings. Aroma is caramel and mild hops.
Taste is sweet dark caramel with a bitter hop finish. Carbonation is just right. Easy drinker though a bit sweet for my tastes.
Would like to try some with a good Mexican meal where the sweetness helps subdue the spiciness of the food.
