Light brown where light shines through the center of the glass. No head and no lace whatsoever.

Dark toast aroma. Mild hop smell.

There are elements of burnt barley. Thin body with an elevated carbonation level. Decent bitterness in the swallow.

simple hoppy dark roast lager. Not great but suffices at a picnic.

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.
