look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a pint.

Appearance: A very dark brown, still transparent with a 1/4" off whit to tan head.

Smell: light maple, almost bock-like. If there was a word that meant lighter than light I would use it this beer is really light when it comes to smell.

Taste: Malty, light barley and for a beer not very high on the ABV level you definitely taste the alcohol. I taste little maple and a notch sweet I truly like it.

Mouth: medium carbonation with sharp bubbles. It has an even better after taste but not the most lasting.

Overall: Having this on tap after finishing an incredible rib-eye and a great choice. On tap this beer was the right choice, have one one me. Salud!

Serving type: on-tap
