Served from the can and poured into a 12 oz mug. The appearance is golden/red and very clear. The aroma is very much sweet without a hop note to be found. The mouth feel is crisp and carbonated. The taste is where this beer goes down hill; it is an absolute malt bomb with little encouraging me to open the next can from the 6 pack.

Balanced, but a weird style. Not quite sure where the hops were supposed to be

Nothing if not bland. This was my first experience with Baxter Brewing Co and I must say I'm disappointed.

Too bland for my taste. Maybe it's the style I am not too familiar with.
