look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear red-brown with one-and-a-half finger, white, creamy head that lasted a couple minutes. Okay lacing.

S: Caramel malt, bread, mild.

T: Light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Toasty malt. Mild flavor.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

O: There's nothing wrong with this beer, but the aroma and taste are mild and uninteresting. Not bad though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Pint Glass

A: Copper color with 1 finger foamy head which dissipates quickly leaving light lacing.

S: A faint smell of malt. Not much aroma at all.

T : Malt with nutty tones and a sweet aftertaste of Caramel.

M: Medium bodied with a slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel was a little too watery for my taste.

O: This beer is not bad but it is not great either. The weak aroma and watery mouthfeel was a really big turn off for me. I would still take this over an adjunct American lager and day of the week.
