Pours a clear copper color with a bit of a white head that doesn't stay around long, reducing down to a bit of lacing across the top.

Smell is very malty, with a bit of yeast.

Sweet and malty up from, bit of fruit as well. Has a little bit of a funky aftertaste.

Nothing special about the feel, a bit watery.

Basically an average at best beer. Nothing about it really stands out, and the funky aftertaste doesn't help matters. There are better beers out there.

This is essentially an "Amber lite", not bad but nothing special. Has a light cherry smell to it, watered down mouth feal , probably would be great if you enjoy amber type beer but want something for a hot summer evening or out on the golf course. Smooth malt with no noticeable hop bite to it. Had a half inch of foam that dissipated in less than one minute.
