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.
