Pours a dark copper with not much of a head to speak of, and predictably no lacing left along the glass. Smell is malty, sweet, and slightly grainy/astringent. Taste is also malty. Nothing to write home about, but it does have a toasted lager feel to it. A step up from a traditional, basic american lager, but I can't see myself reaching for more than two of these in a session -- just not much noteworthy about it.

A- Dark copper with thick head that dies fast.

S- Brown Bread, syrupy sweetness. Some undistinguishable grains. Light nuttiness.

T- Flavors are all very light, Brown bread crust, sweetness. Toasty malts. Light grains. slight spicy quality from the hops.

M- Kind of flat. It is clean and refreshing. Body is light. Not all that dry. It finishes semi sweet and grainy.

it's a slightly above average. It's pretty watery, but it's got a tad more flavor than an American lager.
