The color of a penny - nice copper with off-white head. Decent lacing, faint scent of hops and malt.
Nice form up front: toasty, malt-forward flavors with a touch of spice. Hint of butterscotch in the nose. It is a bit soapy and sweet in the finish, and could use a touch more dryness in the finish. I think if the finish was a little less rough, indeed, I could drink more than one of these.
Considering the price point, this is not a bad option for someone wanting something with a bit more flavor compared to the usual macro lager choices. I picked this up in a 12 pack for $13.99 - hardly a bank breaker.
It would probably go alright with burger and fries.
