Finger of head with a reddish hue. Clear, copper colored body.
Smell is faintly lemon, faintly.
Plain Jane taste. Almost flavorless at first, mild bitterness to end it.
Crisp and clean texture, medium body with moderate carbonation.
Not bad, but not good or interesting.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of foamy finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent copper brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty and lagerish. The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor was softly acidic. Not one that I would buy again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, pecan wood colored beer, twistoff longneck, cheesy label, thin light lacy head. Autolytic, slightly tangy malt aroma. Edgy, sour, woody, not sweet, mineral water flavors, a bit toasty and perhaps very, very lightly diacetyl. Medium body, prickly carbonation. Toasty malt aftertaste with some woody bitterness. Nothing to write home about, better as it warms a bit. ABC, Bull Run.
