Pours a clearish brown with a puffy off-white head that dissipates into about 3mm of head. The smell is very light, but lots of metallic aromas and hints of toast and caramel toward the finish. Metal is definitely the most noticeable by far. The flavor is quite roasty and toasty with that metallicness coming through quite strongly. Extremely light body and a thin texture with a fairly poppy carbonation. Finishes very clean and crisp.

Look: pours a light brown. Maybe a deep ruby. Pours clear with a white head that fades quickly. No lacing on the rim.
Smell: very sweet malty aroma. Banana.
Taste: heavy malt. Bready flavor. Slight bitterness on the back.
Feel: almost feels like a soda. Heavy carbonation. Foams every time you tilt the glass back and forth.
Overall: not my style of beer. But ok. Nothing wrong with it just not my style.
First drank: home 7/13/14

Bottled. Browned maroon with a small white ring of a head. Caramel nose atop moderate toasted grains and over ripened banana. Lightly sweet flavor that grows slightly in sweetness. Some quick metallic notes between flavors of sweet straw and old bread. A bit bland for me.
