A- Poured from the tap with a thin off-white head, which quickly evaporated with just a hint of a collar in the wake. The body was an optically clear garnet-tinged medium brown... little traces of visible carbonation.
S- Overall a very mild nose. I am straining to pick up any aroma... I'm in a smoke-free bar, with no food on the table... and while this was served a little on the cool side, I still should get SOMETHING off the nose... but I nothing...
T- A fairly nice balance of some vienna malts and some earthy hop flavor. This balance persists through the midpalate, until some mild hop bitterness kicks-in and lingers a bit in the finish. Overall, I feel that the flavor is good, but still somewhat weak... like someone took a nice Brown Ale and diluted it with some water.
M- A very thin body with a- I don't want to say a coarse carbonation, but perhaps a 'spritzy' carbonation... Low level of astringency. No real texture.
D- Overall drinkable... while it fails to break the mediocre barrier in all other categories, it's refreshing enough to drink in quantity on a hot day.

Surprising balanced and very drinkable. Very pleasant color and very nice thick head (from tap). Caramel, nutty, and sweet notes, hops is present, but not overwhelming like so many microbrews; low on the IBU scale. The beer was good enough for me to take the time to review it, which is saying something, as I have never reviewed a beer before (at least not publicly!)... Now back to drinking... I will definitely be having another one. :)
