2-3 oz. sample served in a pint glass.

Burnished copper in color, with a thin layer of off-white bubbles that don't hold on for too long.

Aroma is pretty basic and rather boring, with a light bit of toffeeish malt notes and a bit of grassy hops.

Light-bodied with a low level of carbonation; as with the aroma, there's not a whole lot as far as the flavors go, with a bit of a bready malt backbone being balanced by a middle of earthy, grass-like hope notes.

Though this was based on a sample, it seems easily drinkable, with a light body and inoffensive character. Perhaps a good session beer, but nothing spectacular.

Pours a dark copper color from the draft with a nice, creamy white head. Head doesnt stay long and there is little to no lacing down the glass.

Aromas are mostly lacking. Not much in the way of hops. Light malt flavor. I was disappointed with the aroma of this one.

Nice flavor profile. No real bitterness; actually, none. Some hop flavor but nothing in the way of bitterness.

Smooth mouthfeel. This one is pretty drinkable. I am on the fence as to whether or not to try this one again but it was just above average overall.
