16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served up a see-through, dark copper-toned body with a finger of dense, ivory-hued foam.

Smell: n/a --no, really, there's nothing there! Frankly, I'm not sure what score to assign this. On one hand it didn't smell like anything, on the other hand it didn't smell bad.

Taste: Mind-bogglingly mild taste of toast and dry caramel with a bland hint of fruit. Thinnest touch of hop character and bitterness. Drying, empty finish. It's in and out in a flash. Some beers leave you wanting more, this one leaves me wanting anything, something.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Low carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Instantly forgettable. My goodness, was that ever a whole bunch of nothing, lacking entirely in the departments of aroma and flavor. Sure, it's smooth and easy-drinking, but if it isn't going to taste like anything, what's the point?

Served on Nitro, in a pint glass

Medium red in color, thick creamy foam from the nitro pour. Very mild in aroma and taste. Very easy drinking, smooth.
