Huge roast notes in this beer with the lager yeast. Easy drinking with a thin body ad low carbonation. But a bit of weird beer. Bebum (1012) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Dark copper, lacy.
Medium body, flavorful, refreshing and balanced mouthfeel, good length.
Bitter, almost dry.
Roasty and hoppy, yeasty, woody.
Nice for a change.
