A: Amber color with a thin cream colored head and small rings of lacing down the glass.

S: Toasted malt, banana peel and wet bread. Not particularly appealing.

T: Nothing particularly appealing here. Some faint toasted malt, drawn out coriander and something metallic. Don't fall for the catchy name.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Dark brown with a light head.

Smell - Unfortunately, I took a few good whiffs and couldn't get anything beyond a malt.

Taste - ...and incidentally, I didn't get much here beyond a malt. The bitterness IS balanced out by the finish, which is a little sweet. It works, but at the same time, I don't really like it. For something with a strong, up-front taste, "bland" shouldn't jump to mind.

Mouthfeel - A little thick with a lingering finish.

Overall - Its okay. I don't hate it, its entirely drinkable, but I can't help but feel there's better out there that have better, more pronounced flavors.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured with a small, of white head of foam on a very hazy, amber brown body. The head fades slowly and leaves decent lace.

S - Bready malt with some spicy pepper and coriander notes.

T - Sweet caramel malt up front. Coriander and perhaps a hint of orange in the middle. Finishes with sweet malt and some toffee as well as a little red apple.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - A bit one one dimensional and overly sweet, but drinkable enough. Pretty good relative to the BJs portfolio.
