On-tap at Babe's

A: The beer pours a very dark brown with a rather creamy tan head.

S: Starts off a little buttery, but that seems to diminish with time. Moderate roastiness with some nice toasted malt and an earthy and floral hop profile. A little bit of bread and toffee sweetness.

T: The flavor also shows some butter. Sweet with a big creamy caramel flavor. Some roast, but not all that intense. A mild bitterness to go along with some light earthy hop notes.

M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.

O: One of the least awful beers at Babe's, but that's not saying much.

Pleasant dark lager of no great distinction.

Very dark with a chestnut cast. Modest head and not a very enthusiastic feel in the mouth. Fairly malty. Best feature is the pleasant hint of roasted barley. Hops a barely discernible, but the whole affair is low-key and more hops would throw it off.

The best of a not very interesting bunch of beers at Babe's. I wanted to bring back a jug of anything from the desert towns, and this was the best I could do. However it is fine for a quaff, just not worth a detour.

A-Brown tinged black body with a medium rich and creamy off-white head that held on and left decent lace.

S-No aroma at all....would expect at least a hint of malt.

T-A nice rescue here with notes of light roasted caramel and lesser notes of chocolate and coffee. Nothing strong all very mild.

M-Medium-light body and little to no aftertaste. Very smooth.

D-Light and easy drinking. Nothing to offend here and not much to excite either, a bit boring for me to love. Would love a bit more roasted/toasted malt complexity and a lingering finish.
