The best thing I can say about this one is that it has a nice malt aroma with a hint of caramel. The color is not bad either; a solid dark brown. However, the taste is not so flavorful. It's a pretty watery and light tasting beer with a slightly creamy finish towards the end of the drink. Not a terrible beer and certainly not the worst I've ever had. I would not rule this one out forever, however, will not actively seek it out.
