2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Pours a clear amber body with a medium-sized, white head.
Smell: Very vague malt aroma with a hint of hops.
Taste: Mild malt presence, at best. Subtle sweetness. No more than a hint of bitterness. Then it’s gone!
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Pretty basic; there’s just not much character to this thing at all.

Bottle thanks to badnloose. Pours an amber color with a small white head that quickly disappears. Flavor is that of sweet fruits and a sweet malt base. Carbonation was just about right with this beverage.

Amber, with a white head. Creamy, malty toasty aroma. Smooth and bready, with a touch of hop bite in the finish. Definately more of a session ale. Sampled at Asheville Brewgrass 2007.
