look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

A: Pours a nice amber color. This is darker than I expected. One-finger white head, visible carbonation. Minimal lacing remains on the glass.

S: A bit of caramely malts. It does have a bit of "cheap beer" smell, not sure what causes this or how to describe it. This aspect does fade as it warms.

T: Caramel, bready malt. Some fruitiness that defies further description...maybe a bit of banana? A bit bland.

M: Good carbonation, a bit on the thin side. Hang is a little bitter, little acerbic.

O: It's OK, nothing special. I have trouble getting past the smell, and I wish I knew what was in here that gave it that aroma. Tastes better than it smells.
