look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Purchased from the Utah system and poured into my beer goblet while quite cold. The back of the bottle says to drink it straight from the bottle, hogwash!
Appearance: A perfectly clear dark brown with a thin tan head that only stuck around a little while and left a corresponding little lacing.
Smell: The smell is really thin, I get no roasty malts at all. I do get a little lager yeast smell.
Taste: A dry almost mildly bitter beer. A little bit of roast comes through in the taste. I also get a sense of mild earth bittering hops, not any sort of aromatic hops.
Mouthfeel: The body is on the medium to thin side, while the carbonation is fine.
Overall: Not a bad beer, but not my style either. I guess I really prefer ales. This one has a decent roast that may appeal to newbies, but is easy to move on to bigger and better beers.
Serving type: bottle
