12oz. bottle poured into standard bar pint glass. Reviewing from notes.
A: Kinda looks like a glass of root beer, or another similar dark soda. Not impressive in terms of head retention, or lacing for that matter. Pretty "meh" for the most part.
S: Some sweet malts up front, a little bit of roasted grains. Overall very light in the aroma department. Not much going on.
T: A lot of sweetness up front, but not from the malts. Almost reminds me of artificial sweetener... Some weird yeasty flavors that meld with some roasted grain give this one an overall weird flavor profile. It's not offensive, but it's not exactly pleasant either.
M: Thin with a soda-like fizz. Light and refreshing, but not what I want in a beer...
O: This one is passable, I guess. Not something that I would find myself ordering again, but it's not offensive enough to earn a "stay away" stamp. Just look past this one if there are better options...
