On draft into a pint glass. Light brown with thin head and not much lacing. Taste is very weak, not much there, but not offensive. Got it on a whim at one of my favorite places. Doubt I will get again.

Really nice warm brown color. Smells more like a bock than an Amber. Strong alcohol flavor from the first sip, strong bock taste, slow transition to a hint of amber, no presence of hops at all. Overall decent beer, but not my first choice.
