A: Amber with a frothy head.
S: Grain and biscuit, malty, slight hop.
T: Very clean and biscuity, nothing too exciting. A slight bittering hop in the finish. Sort of like a lighter version of a lager.
M: Average, fairly smooth, medium carbonation.
O: A very middle of the road micro. Not great, but certainly drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap

Case was at work for a party. 12 oz bottle.
A: Amber color, fairly clean, a tad murky with some bubbles rising to the top. Big thick foamy off white head, stick to the glass pretty well.
S: Grain. Lots of bread and malt aromas, cereal grains are probably the most dominant notes.
T: Really malty. strong biscuit and grain flavors. Finish is filled with some darker fruits, raisins or plums, but it's pretty one dimensional on the grain.
M: A bit of a saving grace. It's got a really nice firm body, smooth finish, very drinkable and approachable.
O: Overall its fine, easily available and fairly priced. It's pretty unremarkable as a beer, but sometimes that works well, especially at an office party.
Serving type: bottle
