Had on tap...

A- Pours a clear amberish brown color with red hues that show more when held to the light. Two finger tan head shows medium retention. Light spotty lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Caramel malt galore in the front of this aroma. Bready notes throughout the nose with large hints of lager yeast. Not a huge hop in the nose but a small grassy note is there. Alcohol is a little in the ending but even this is faint most of the time. Under it all though it does have a BMC underbody to it.

T- Carmael malts which show a little bready hint to it come in first. Hints of earthy hops show up toward the ending of the front of the beer. Light brown sugar notes in the middle of the beer with hints of toasted toffee. Ending is the caramel bready notes with hints of the earthy hops again. Alcohol is a little more in the ending of the flavor than what was shown in the aroma.

M- Light medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is very high for the style. Bready caramel malts and hints of brown sugar are left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly alcohol, brown sugar, bready malts, and hint of faded earthy hops. Flavors are balanced well enough for the style. No off flavors at all but the carbonation is a little too prickly for me. Light medium alcohol drying on the palate.

O- This beer was average or a little above it. There isn't much to it but the malty flavors take hold and at times make you want to drink it a little fast. The ABV is low enough that you can enjoy this beer a little more than a pint or two.
