Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

A - Amber-red pour. One-finger white head. Nice.

S - Kinda absent, really. Barley, malt, almost cedar. None very strong.

T - A lot like the smells. Some malt, fruit, a little alcohol even, with breadiness but not on the wheat side.

M - Pretty balanced, moderate but dry.

O - Pretty good. As someone else said, it could serve as a "gateway" to other craft beers. Drinkable.

Not too much going on here. Basic and plain, actually has a pretty nice amber color, but after that pretty straight forward plain. Aromas of very slight spicy fruit, and that is being nice. taste is on the boring side for me, I expect more from a craft beer.

Red pours a slightly dark golden color, with very small head. There wasn't much of an aroma at all. The taste was rather malty, and yeasty, no other flavors came through. Rather light in taste, no hops whats so ever, and watery. Overall this isn't a horrible beer, but their isn't much here, but it doesn't have a bad taste.
