The color splits the difference a more reddish amber and copper. There is ample light carbonation that makes the body light and thin on the pallet.

The smell is not strong, but it evinces a light brown sugar, some herbal qualities, and a hint of malt.

The flavor, all in, is balanced but lacking any assertive qualities, mixing some light malt, bread, and sugar. Earthier hops come through at the finish and leaves an astringent herbal flavor in the mouth.

This beer is largely unimpressive and lacking in focus, but is not wholly off putting. I would not recommend seeking this out.
