APPEARANCE: This is a surprisingly good looking beer. Deep copper in color, transparent, with thousands of lively bubbles darting up towards the strong, two fingers of white, fluffy head. The head forms a small crown that reaches above the rim of this pint glass after being poured from a 12-ounce bottle. The retention is excellent and ten minutes after the pour there is still a good quarter-inch of head left. The lacing is superb as well, with layering that almost look like a Nitro Milk Stout.

SMELL: There is nothing offensive here, but then again there isn't much of anything here at all. There is basically zero aroma, despite the big, fluffy, pretty head. Maybe there is a trace of sugary malt, but that's it.

TASTE: Indicative of the copper color, there is a fair amount of caramel flavor present along with a slightly burnt toast breadiness. Underneath the malt and yeast is a relatively heavy corn-like taste. A hint of hop bitterness squeaks in at the end as well.

MOUTHFEEL: Slightly sweet to start with a drying finish. The body is actually bigger than expected, I'd say light to medium...but leaning light.

OVERALL: This is not a terrible beer. It is not a great one either, but in a pinch, this will do.
