3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is sweet with maltiness apparent. Has a very thick, frothy head. Very smooth almost like a Guinness but sweeter and comes off the palate quicker. I'm not crazy about it, but it's not too bad. I would consider it if I were really in the mood for a Guinness-like beer.

very malty, caramel, full-bodied, can taste the hops but well hidden by the malts. I don’t know what to really say about this one. It’s decent, nothing crazy.

Attractive ruby amber with a small tan head. Malty, light bread and caramel aroma. Flavor is very toasty and bread crusty. Earthy. Minimal bitterness. Pretty dry. Light body. Its hardly there. Too plain.
