look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Very pleasing to look at. Nice, clear amber color. Love nitro cans for the head they leave. Thick, creamy, and white. Looks great holding it up to the light.
S: Very malty. Not much else to it other than straight malt. Not a bad smell, just not very exciting.
T: Very thin. Definitely tastes like the malty smell. Even then, it's muted. Very middle of the road. Not bad, just "meh".
M: Clean and light. Felt watery even. Could drink a lot very fast.
O: I bought this to use in a beer cheddar soup (naturally I drank some while I cooked). Definitely a beer you can drink with food. Not offensive, not super high alcohol, thin, and easy drinking. For a session beer, it gets the job done. Worked very well in the soup. Nothing spectcular here, like a good bar band. Fits in, makes things feel right, but never going to have a gold record.
Serving type: nitro-can
