From a 12 oz bottle scored "best by October 2010", into a pint glass. Hazy yellowish color with thin whitish head that fades at a moderately rapid pace. Nose of faint berries and fainter bread. Light flavor of blackberry, more artificial than natural. Light sweetness predominates; there are really no other flavors (hops, malt) to compete. Tastes more like "flavored beer X" rather than a beer that could stand on its own merits. Mouth is crisp and light with light carbonation, possibly this brew's strongest point. Drinkability is OK overall, a bit too sweet for mass consumption, but otherwise nearly sessionable.
Overall: Another "meh" flavored beer from SA. Not bad but not good either.
