Smooth tasting Amber, clean finish, a beer that you want to drink more than one.

Pours a light fizzy head that fades almost instantly, clear tan maroon auburn brown color, looks like soda.

Nose generic sweet reddish malt, faint toffee nutty note, little syrupy, that's about it.

Taste brings more of the same, generic reddish malt, toasty masts with mild syrupy toffee candi and faint nutty. But at least decent hops, quite bitter that ramps quickly, earthy and spicy hops, chewy like esp on the finish, long lingering spicy chewy hop finish, sticky mild syrupy lingering.

Mouth is med bod, little syrupy, decent carb.

Wildly drinkable. Modest Amber with no head. Slightly honey sweet. Good session beer.
