Served on tap after the BA Speedway release. The appearance is a dark brown with a small off white head. The nose has a nice malty, nuts and grain thing going on. The taste follow with the grainy/nut flavors with some caramel and light molasses. The mouth is pretty drying. A tasty beer that goes down easy.

On tap at Alesmith brewery. Cola brown/red. Sweet and tart. Sugary smack to sharp back. Sharp malt moves around and hides between sweet. Nice. Hard to believe the abv is so low.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a finger of tan head.
S: Smells like a good mild. Lots of toasted malts and bread. Definitely malt driven, despite what has to be a low gravity. Light earthy and floral hop notes and a touch of yeast. A moderate sweetness overall.
T: The flavor has a nice balance to it. Somewhat sweet with a little bit of bitterness and a strong toast character. Lots of bread and earthy hops. A little bit of a floral character to it as well.
M: Light in body (not watery/thin, though), with a medium carbonation.
O: Definitely easy to drink, but pretty tasty as well. Not sure what the exact ABV is on this, but I’m pretty certain it’s quite low.
