Bottle. Pours dark brown, Slight white head, dissipates to a thin film and retains that. Aroma is sweet malts, toasty oats, a little pecan, a real nutty aroma. Taste is hay, toasted nuts, sweet malts. No hops to speak of. Just an OK beer.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a dark amber, hazy, with initially quite a bit of foam, then falls to a etched surface of the same almond colored goods. Smells of tea, malt, some oxidation. Flavor is terribly oxidized, lots of cardboard, wood, some more tea, some grass clippings and yeast. Medium bodied with moderate on low carb and a dry finish. Sometimes I get a hint of astringency. I don’t care for this one.

Murky brown into a tulip glass with a thin beige head the quickly disappears. Aroma of yeast and sweet malt. Light body with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Finishes a little dry. Not bad but not that good either.

Aroma reminds me of a mixture of Budweiser and soap. Reddish with a head that quickly dissipates. I don’t normally like bitter beers, but this beer has a slight bitterness that grows on you...makes my mouth water. After another smell, I almost feel like taking a shower with it.
