Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Pub in Gettysburg, PA. This is a complete disappointment. The beer is a dark brown with a tan head and has a metallic odor to it. The flavor is dull and flat with a metallic flavor mixed with some malt, completely forgettable.

From a bottle.

Dark mahogany with very good clarity. Decent head.

Mild aroma with a flavor that is a bit better but also mild.

O: Decent except too mild.
