Pours dark brown, about the color of a brown ale. Nice off-white head about 1.5 inches. Fuzzy carbonation. Malty carmel aroma. No lacing down the glass. Sweet up front with carmelized sugar and chocolate flavor. Somewhat grainy, metalic finish with hop bitterness. A bit thin, but expected in a lager of 4.5% abv. A nice session beer.
