Poured mahogany red with a white head 1 finger high. Sweet malty taste with a medium mouthfeel. Overall not a bad beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 3, 2014.

The pour is a hazy medium amber with no red hints. A modest head that fades to nothing.

The aroma has a sweet roasted malt character and a semi-crisp hint of hops.

The body is light to medium and somewhat smooth.

The taste has nothing extraordinary to it. There are some sweet malts and a short bitter finish. It feels like a knock-off brand.
