Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear brown color with a large off-white colored head. The aroma is malt. the taste matches the nose. A very basic beer.

Served from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass.
Pours a thick, foamy cream colored head that falls slowly with plenty of lacing on the glass. Color is clear amber with abundant carbonation streams. Aroma of rich bread dough, caramel, earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly wet finish. Flavor is abundant with molasses, toasted malt with some char, caramel, raisin, well balanced with earthy hops. Really enjoyed this one and would buy again.
