Interesting appearance, darker than expected, almost light brown notes. Bitter, pine, in the woodsy kind of hop vibe.

Lots of bitterness, lots of malt which held the alcohol off the tongue. Mild citrus notes. Tasted like a lager/steam beer almost from the yeast contributions. Mild sweetness, this goes into crystal malt territory I believe.

I don't like the big bottle format, should be a 4 pack kind of beer.

Picked up a bottle of this off the dry shelf at a local BevMo. Opened it up took one sip and drain poured the rest. Must have been a very old bottle, but couldn't find any date on it SMH.

I think it was my only drain pour of the year, wish i didn't waste that $12, thanks again BevMo
