This review may not be relevant as I had this 6 months past the bottled on date. I really did not like this at all. It had very little flavor and the flavor it had was not good in my opinion. I hope to try a more recent bottle because the reviews I'm seeing are going right against what I tried.

Poured into a frosted pilsner glass. Look is golden brown with a thick creamy head. Smell is very slight malty. Taste is of malt, toffy sweetness and a hint of hops. Mouth is smooth and creamy with medium carbonation.

Thought this was a nicely balanced easy beer. Looks great and is pretty foamy. A little smoky and malty with medium fizz. Would buy again !
