Brought it back home from Pazzo's in Lexington (Plug for Pazzo's! Yay!) It is deep brown in color with a strong red tint. It would be a lot better looking if the head hung around for more than 0 seconds, but hey. Smells very sweet (in a fruity way) and yeasty. Not too complex, but rather refined in its simplicity. The taste is surprisingly subtle and fades rather quicky. As expected from the nose, there is a sweet yeasty taste, the aforementioned fruit being drowned out. It finishes with a dry, grassy taste. Normally, I'd prefer more carbonation than this, but somehow, this beer pulls it off without much at all. A very nice beer.
