Pours a finger of head on a hazy darker straw body.
The aroma is a nice grain and milk smell.
The taste is simple and unoffensive, mild dark fruits and mild bitterness.
The texture is smooth and soft.
An easy drinking ale.

Pours from a 500ml can.

A- clear, dark mahogany, pours a creamy off white head. Head thickness starts well, but thins out to 0.5cm very quickly.

S-almost none.veeery faint roasted malts.

T-initially sour with hint of orange, before the sweetness sneaks in, as well as some sweet roasted malt.

M- oily texture, thin body, nil carbonation, short finish.

O- the taste and aroma are pretty bland, but its the mouthfeel that ruins this its like beer flavoured water!

No taste whatsoever. Weak consistency but still totally under my expectations. Bitterness is completely nonexistent.
