Dark roasted almost burnt malt smell, maybe a bit acrid scent or bit of sourness.
Pretty thin, kind of watery truthfully without much presence on the palette.
Poured to small amount of off white head which has quickly dissipated in a tulip glass, some slight lacing. Almost completely dark with only faint light coming through on the edges of the glass.
Sour, astringent flavor on the palette. It seems to be getting worse as it warms. It finally hit me what this reminds me of, plain non-flavored seltzer water so maybe a hint of quinine.
Not very, thin on the palette with a poor mouthfeel. I'm glad I only bought a single.
This is a very poor outing and likely my one and only time trying this beer. Thin and watery, a sour astringent taste and poor acidic aftertaste. I love Guinness Stout, but this is not a winner.

poured from a ~15oz can into a pint glass.
A: Thick beige head that falls slowly and clings to the glass. Nice black color, clear and dark brown along the edges.
S: Bread, very light roast, a little earthy.
T: Smooth malty start, a surprisingly strong bitter kick which lingers. Pretty simple.
M: Light, smooth, creamy carbonation.
O: Nice clean black lager. Easy drinking with a light roasted character and smooth mouth.
Serving type: can
