Another beer received in a recent BIF.
Pours a medium-dark amber color, not quite clear, with one finger of yellowish tan head. Decent retention, some lacing. Not bad, not great.
Smells fairly nutty, heavy on the malts, with some faint herbal hops. Nothing exciting going on, but not bad. Low sweetness, low bitterness - rather woody. Malts and hops, you know the drill.
Taste again is pretty malty, though the bitterness picks up through the second half. Mildly bitter finish that gradually fades away. Malts are, again, rather nutty and woody.
Mouthfeel is fine, just like most things about this beer. Fine. Medium-bodied, a little heavier than expected, with enough carbonation.
This beer is fine, but it's pretty blah. It doesn't wow me with anything - no big flavors, no subtle complexity. It's just okay.
