Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of deanso. Pours a clear amber beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma is grainy, malty and fairly sugary. Flavor is rather sweet and malty, touches of caramel but really nothing interesting going on here. Faint hops in the background, giving it a vague bitter touch in the finish. Nothing special.
