poured this into a pilsner glass (Blue Moon) just for grins, and because I plan on drinking some real crap later as a science experiment... nice bright orange and caramel-y color with a medium thick creamy head. smell is slightly hoppy with an amateurish kind of aroma to it also... taste is caramel malts with hops and slight abrasive bitterness at the end. some fruits in there on the middle of the tongue.
overall, a decent brew. not terribly bad in any way and I nice 7.2% abv.... now, on to the CRAP!!!! tally ho!
