a: pours a dark amber with a clear body.. got about a half finger worth of off white head.. settles to a thin cap..
s: almost all malt here.. maybe some caramel along with slightly toasted malt.. slight metallic undertone.. faint earthiness as well..
t: upfront is a slight toasty malt with some metallic.. middle of the tongue brings a bit of sweetness to the flavor.. backend is slightly toasty malt with some earthiness qualities to it..
mf: light bodied with a bit more than "crisp" carbonation.. clean finish for the most part..
o: finally get to try this.. its not bad for what it is.. makes for a good session brew.

Pours a clear, golden brown with a fizzy, short lived off white head.
Lightly grassy floral notes muddled with a bready, caramel malt backing.
Medium body, fizzy carbonation.
A decent beer, nothing particularly exciting, but easy drinking, and pleasant.

On-tap at $4 a pint.
Appearance: Brown. Plenty of clarity. Not much head, and virtually zero lacing. Looks alright, I guess.
Smell: Malty. Slightly roasty. No hop aroma, really. Just has a cheap sort of smell, but it's not off-putting or anything like that. Again, alright.
Taste/feel: For a third time, it's okay. It has a thin feel with a moderate prickly carbonation. Caramel malts and the like with a slight roastiness as well. Sweet, not bitter at all... mediocre, and pretty uninteresting.
Short review for a beer that doesn't require a long one. It's a beer that... just... it is what it is. Affordable, decent, nothing-at-all-special beer. Sweet, quite thin, a good amount of carbonation, not very interest piquing. Probably wouldn't buy it again.
Serving type: on-tap
