Poured from tap to glass. Deep red hue with creamy off white head. Aroma is floral, sugar, slight chocolate, caramel, yeast esters, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and great carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a nice hop bitterness in the finish. Overall, this is a fantastic brew with a very clean malty offering and floal hoppiness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I could have bought a Miller and would have almost been just as good. You can smell the hops, has a bitter, foul aftertaste, only good thing to say about it is it has 7.2% ABV and the color is a perfect caramel. Not worth it, leave it on the shelf.
