I was expecting something different when I sampled this beer but really was pleasantly surprised by its smoothness. It is a reddish color with a semi-sweetness, not-too-hoppy flavor, and I could easily drink many pints of this, but I did not! (I'm driving) ABV=5.4 so it is very drinkable with no bite involved. Smoooth!
