12 brown bottle with a bottle code, no freshness date.
A- Deep orangey red color, very clear ... the head dissipates a little too quick for my liking.
S- Mild toasted malt aroma, wet with a caramel undertone.
T&M- Slight crispness, a tad slick on the palate with a moderate body. Thinning toasted grain meets a watery steely caramel malt, hoppiness stays on balanced bitter with very little flavor.
D- Better than Killian's Red, but that is not saying much is it. I guess my point is, if you are going to brew this style it can't be strip filtered and perhaps pasteurized. Lacks that malty lager freshness. Not bad but nothing to go out of your way for.
