An old favorite of mine. Poured into a shaker pint.
Appearance: A deep garnet color with a thin tan head that quickly dissapears. Despite the problems inherent with clear bottles and skunking, I always enjoyed watching the bottle turn clear as I drank, which has to count for something.
Smell: Some sweet malt. Despite clear bottle, I can't find any skunk.
Taste: Sweet crystal malt and no roast character. Not sure how they pulled the last part off.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, definitely more substance than your average lager.
An easy drinking and accessible ale, but these days I feel it lacks depth beyond that.
Serving type: bottle
