look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear, brownish-red color with two fingers of off-white head that fades with a decent curtain of lace.

Aroma: Grainy, grassy, a little nutty, cooked veggie.

Taste: Mild roasted malt flavor that is a bit nutty and astringent, some light bitterness towards the finish, then a pretty grainy finish with a little dish rag.

The Rest: Decent body and carbonation, but fairly unremarkable otherwise. It lacks a robust, appealing malt profile; this is much to grainy tasting.
