Served from the can and poured into a 12 oz mug. The appearance is golden/red and very clear. The aroma is very much sweet without a hop note to be found. The mouth feel is crisp and carbonated. The taste is where this beer goes down hill; it is an absolute malt bomb with little encouraging me to open the next can from the 6 pack.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

LOOK: Nice Golden Color, White Foamy Head Disappears Quickly
SMELL: Subtle/Mild
TASTE: Good Over-All, Not Over-Powering, Slightly Bitter Finish
FEEL: Smooth and Mild Carbonation,

OVERALL: Good Solid Lager with above average ABV (5.3%) that Doesn't Over-Power You....I enjoyed It....and will Purchase it again....But I WON'T be Rushing Back To The Store for MORE.

Pours nicely from the can, with a chestnut brown color, white head, and decent lacing. Mostly clear and inviting. Sweet malts up-front on the nose with caramel, cherries, and not much else detected. Very light aroma. Taste is clean and refreshing. Malty, with a hint of damp basement in-mouth and a dryish finish. Sweet tea, wood, chocolate caramel, and a touch if sediment round out the flavors. The mouthfeel is pretty unobtrusive, with a clean finish and polished overall feel. Overall it's a nice lager, but lacks a distinctive trait to help it stand out.
