Clear amber pour. Smell of roasted malts and what I think is chocolate or coffee but that’s me I guess. The same goes for taste. Too bad the mouthfeel is Bud Light thin. Somewhat low to medium carbo. I actually enjoyed this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle from the cellar (54F). Pours with very little head and rapidly dissipates to a ring of foam. The brewer’s description is dead on - there is very little to no hop aroma. Aromas of hay and malt. Taste is malty with essentially no bitterness; caramel and malt. I do like the malty flavor, but it isn’t particularly complex. Would be good with food.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a small white head on it. Nose is rather light and slightly toasty. Taste is unremarkable and slightly malty, with just a bit of sweetness. Save for the label, entirely forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Transparent amber with frothy white head that clears quickly. Very little aroma, but there is a hint of earthy and hops. Taste is very carbonated, with flavors of malts, barley and water. Meh. Not great but it has a cool label.

pours a amber color with small white head that does not last long. the aroma is earthy, barley. the taste is more of the same. not much difference than american adjunct lager to be honest but at least the bottle is cool to add to the collection.
