Brown pour. The aroma is loaded with berryish sweetness over a bit of cocoa. Chewy lingering fruity flavour... meh. It’s kind of Plain Jane really.

b3shine (6596) - Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks decent; a transparent blackberry brown with light beige head. Smells wheaty and malty with mild notes of blackberry. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Average (at best) on the palate. Eh.

It pours a slightly hazy brownish-orange with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with mild blackberry and grass. The finish has the slightest hint of roastiness. Light-medium bodies with moderate carbonation.
