Reviewed from notes.

A. Copper colored semi hazy, one finger head which dies back in about two minutes, moderate lacing left behind.

S. A fairly standard biscuit malt, the barest hint of fruity esters in the background but otherwise kind of boring and plain.

T. Sweet caramel malt, grainy flavor and feel...standard.

M. Medium bodied.

The perhaps textbook definition beer for the idea of an average and inoffensive beer that can come across as boring, and yet you drink it anyway because it is at least better than a BMC. I can't think of a craft beer more deserving of the straight 3's rating all the way down the line than this one.
