Did not enjoy this beer at all. It is what Alexander Keith's is to Americans. It's a mass produced knock off attempt at a craft brew.

Beautiful Amber color with great aroma and taste. Not overpowering in flavor and is for the casual drinker looking to enjoy a few beers at parties. You can drink these like your typical party beers (Bud, Coors, etc.) but enjoy added flavor with every sip.
