I poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass...

The liquid is a copper color with a thin, white, bubbly head. You can smell lots of toasted malt, butter, there is a slightly herbal presence in the background. The taste consists of toasted bread, there is a tangy bite on the sides of the mouth and a hint of lemon. The beer is light and has sharp carbonation. This is an average beer, I could drink a lot of them but would probably get bored.

Serving type: 12oz bottle.

Poured a medium amber color wtih an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of grain and caramel. Tastes of grain with light caramel. I found the body to be a little thin and watery at times.
