12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Clear dark copper with a finger of off white head which disappears quickly.

S - The smell is malt-forward. I get bread and biscuit malts with a hint of caramel, and very slight hop aroma.

T - Sweet malt is the dominant flavor here. Bread, biscuit, and caramel sweetness. This is followed by a slight hop bitterness. Slightly watery tasting.

M - This a watery and thin beer. Luckily there's a decent amount of carbonation.

O - It smells and tastes good, but the mouthfeel is severely lacking. A good session beer, but nothing I'd seek out again.

A - nice clear copper color, thin head that leaves no real lacing. Bottle is cool :))

S - Smells like an AAL. Getting rice, corn, light bread, etc.

T - Also not that good. Same rice, corn, light bread. I can tell this is a beer some would try to (but hate to) play beer pong with. There's just no flavor, but it's not that smooth.

M - Light, slightly bitter, aftertaste almost non-existent.

O - Yea it pretty much sucks. I was expecting something after DDBA. But whatever, they can't all be winners can they?
