Pours a straw like amber, moderate cap of white froth. Pale scent with some musty and damp grain, faint grass, light sweetness. Taste doesnt bring much more to the table - light musty and damp not carry throughout the flavor. Light, watery and bubbly. Again, nothing to see here...

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours an amber color with some light red tints. Upon pouring there is a one finger white head that has a rather decent retention. Upon fading the head gives way to a nice level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is almost none existent. All I can pick up are some lighter notes of a bready nature mixed with a tiny biscuit and hop

Taste – The taste begins with a dry biscuit and bready flavor. These flavors remain throughout the taste, but only very light changes are in the taste otherwise. A lighter citrus and grassy flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. It starts out light and grows slightly stronger toward the end with a light caramel flavor coming to the tongue. In the end a bready and lightly bitter flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light to medium in creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average. Decent for the crisper and bitter flavors and makes it rather easy to drink.

Overall – Nothing really all that great. Pretty bland in the taste department and lacking any complexity or nose. Nothing to really go out of your way for.
