Tap at Raglan in OB. Clear garnet brown with a 1 1/2 finger light beige head, good retention. Belgian yeast nose with some toffee and light toasted graham cracker. Flavor seems watery and muted, but what’s there is good. Never gets very sweet, though does have a little carbonic bite I get in seltzer. Scant earthy bitterness in the finish. Low to moderate carbonation with a thin body. In the end, they packed a lot into this beer, considering it’s weaker than Bud Light. Quite sessionable. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 14, 2012
