2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Had this beer on 4/5/1998. Color is a deep rich brown with very low carbonation and had this may be because I have had this beer for a while. The aroma is full of nicely roasted malt. Taste, it’s a medium body beer with moderate malt back tones. It starts off with a smooth body that goes down easy then finishes with a mild malt flavor and very little hop taste or bitterness. Its a good drinking beer but nothing special.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, lightly acidic, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Complaints: very simple/boring malt aroma, slightly dirty aftertaste.
