3.18/5  rDev -6.7%

Serving type: 12-ounce can. A batch code is printed on the bottom but there is no discernable freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is copper/amber. A finger of light, eggshell-colored head left a very thin, spotted skim and a thin, buttery ring round the edge.

Smell: Musty, pale grains at first, but toasted malts offer a nice candy caramel aroma that at times reminds me of cherry licorice. At the end of each whiff are teasing hints of floral hops.

Taste: The mouthfeel is relatively light and the flavor matches it at first. However, toasted malts, candy caramel, and a little toffee come on strong as the beer warms. Pale malts also give it a bready quality, too. It is pretty sweet, overall.

Drinkability: There is not much to it, really, but it does offer flavor and is very quaffable.

I was so lucky to live where this was readily available. It's so much better then the standard beers that are available, but it is priced similarly. For the price, you can't beat it. If you're in the area, give it a try and see what you're missing out on by drinking bud, coors, whatever.
