0.5 Bottle. Pours clear amber. Aroma: malts, smoke, earthy hops. Taste has low sweetness. Flavors are not very pronounced and follow the nose. Dry and bitter long finish. Nothing special.

Pours a yellowish orange with about a finger of slightly off-whtie head. From a distance, a slightly skunked odor, coming closer its a bit more brown sugar and sweet malt. The flavor builds into a nice warm raisin with a bitter start and finish. Better than I expected (I was worried about the clear bottle with the initial odor to be honest, thought it might have skunked). But its a solid malty beer, if you want a English style session beer with some mild ESB notes.
