2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light aroma of caramel or bread or both. Decent amber color with an off-white head that pretty much just filmed. Medium bodied. Not too fizzy. Sort of biscuit malt, and not all that much hop. Not much point in it, unless you like sweet without bitter.
