Going off old notes here. Very murky amber with a decent off white head. The aroma is rich, fruity, yellow apples, light cherries. Kinda let down on the body, light body, kinda dry, subtle fruit flavor, low carbo. Blah Beer is a better name for this one

Poured a light copper, a little too light, but crystal clear with a half finger head. Slightest amount of lacing and continuing carbonation.

Smells a lot like Yuengling, a bit malty and metallic with no discernible hop aroma. Taste is bready/grainy, a bit coarse like I'm chowing down on a mouthful of barley. Tasty.

Mouthfeel is crisp and a little bubbly.

A nice little amber, which is a style I don't drink frequently. This was a nice changeup though.

A: Deep reddish-orange sunburst with fade to golden-yellow. Rich creamy white foam. This is an unfiltered beer, so very clear pour unless you make the whole pour. With sediment, it is still attractive with just a light haze of uniformly tiny particulate.
S: Malty. Dark chocolate, tomato, cashew.
T: Malty, slightly spicy, blunted sweetness.
M: Moderately sticky with lingering watery finish.
O: Very pleasant smooth ale, with classic to style maltiness and flavor dense balance.
