Bottle. Reddish brown with long lasting thin head. Slightly artificial aroma, touch of vanilla. Wood, vanilla and nut flavour. Finish is a little chemically. Overall effect is a little uneven.

The beer after extricating itself from the 12 ounce brown bottle sets in the class a clear brown with a modest light tan head, the lace a thin sheet to cover the glass. Nose is malt sweet, fresh and pleasing to the senses, start is sweet, the top thin. Finish has a benign acidity, the hops quite mild an unassuming, dry aftertaste, a bit weak for my liking, but drinkable especially now as the temperature has climbed into the 100’s.

Really a weird aroma to it. Sweet musky. Very little hop flavor, but nice roast that open up after it comes to temp. Finishes very clean.
