Appearance - Pours a fairly clear, dark amber brown with reddish tinge. The off-white head is about a finger thick, and dies fairy quickly, leaving behins a sparse lace.

Smell - Mostly sweet caramel and honey-like malt in the aroma... a bit of dry hop as well. The smell is light and pleasant.

Taste - Tastes like it smells. Sweet caramel and honey malt to start, then quickly switches over to a dry hop finish. A very faint sawdust flavor in the aftertaste? The finish happens very fast.

Mouthfeel - Light, and very little carbonation. It goes down smooth, but in a watered down sort of way.

Overall - Nothing offensive about this beer, but nothing too interesting either. To call this a 'safe beer' seems an appropriate term.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.

Pours a medium dark brown with no foam. Light malty smell - kind of a sweeter caramel smell. Light sweet malt taste - a little bland and with no carbonation. Mild and uneventful. Some cola flavor in there. Just enough bubbles to let you know its not the wort. But just Ok at best.
