Poured into a Sam Adams glass
A: Dark amber color, clear, very little carbonation, initial head is quickly reduced into an extremely thin lacing.
S: Caramel, some malt, and a unique smell that I can't get my nose on. Almost like stale mango; kind of hard to describe.
T: Initial taste has some sweetness to it and it disappears rather fast. There is a subtle taste of biscuit once you begin to swallow but you really have to look for it. There is no real aftertaste and once you finish taking a drink the flavors are non existent.
MF: Very smooth beer. Leaves no bitterness behind and no taste of alcohol. The finish is a little dry. Overall very watery.
O: I think this is a good beer to have when you want to have a session beer and don't want to settle for a BMC. It definitely has more flavor than the macro beers but they aren't very memorable. I suppose it's a good beer to give to a friend or relative who is looking into craft beers but is not ready for something like Stone, Laguanitas, or Sam Adams. For what it is, it's an okay beer.
