Pours a medium brown color, with very little head. Almost no carbonation and just about zero lacing. The smell is very one dimensional to me. Wheat, a tiny bit of malt, and an odd copper smell. Very thin nose on this beer. The taste is about the same. Very thin, uninteresting, and not worth finishing. This one's a drainpour for me. Mouthfeel is somewhat dry and definitely on the thin side, with a copper aftertaste. Overall, I would not recommend this beer.. You can do a lot better for the style.

Dark, copper in color...small white head that goes away faster than any head I can remember.
This is a very clear beer.
Nose is sweet, malts of caramel.
Mild malts prevail in the taste. Caramel, bready and a slight bitterness finishes on the palate.
Mouthfeel is decent.
This one is growing on me.
