4 Oz pour on tap.

S: light grains malts a little hoppy.

T: tastes a lot like a mild but even more watery and with a floral Hop bite on the end.

M: thin light

O: I was not too impressed with this beer. I would drink an English Mild over this any day.

From tap at Fat Head's Saloon South Side Pittsburgh. Unfortunately ate their buffalo sauce cauliflower (which are excellent) which killed my taste buds. From what I can tell, this is a smooth, drinkable offering!

Jet black. Pretty smooth and close to a stout in look and taste. A lot of carbonation but would definitely order again.
