Beer pours a crisp looking amber orange color with a slight head.

Clean aroma of malt and toast with maybe a little caramel. No aroma from yeast or hops.

Clean tasting, a little bit of malt and toast. Pretty simple though.

Medium body.

Overall a good beer for the style. Pretty simple with just flavors of toast and malt but rather tasty for the style. Nice and crisp as well.

I drank this beer, like it was intended, from a gigantic cask purchased at Bottles & Bins in Monterey, CA. It had an amazing, strong, aroma that enticed me through out my journey. It had a small amount of sediment that also made for a great taste. Really bitter for those first timers.
