pours a amber color with a beige head. the aroma is sweet malts but faint. the taste is like a brown bread, earthy, slight amount of citrus and spices but not much. i enjoyed this beer a lot on draft (it had more spices and full flavor) but from the bottle it seemed bland.

Pours a beautiful dark amber with a creamy off-white head that stays forever. Nose is almost nothing. Light hint of malt. Taste is sweet and malty and notes of light spice and citrus come through. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Decent brew.

Bitter lager flavour. Pleasant aroma, quiet palate. Not terribly interesting or remarkable but nothing tp turn your nose up to.
