This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a nice looking light amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lacing is kinda messy, but still nothing bad to look at it.
The smell had some sweet breadiness, light nuts, and some apples (not sure where that's coming from), hmmm...
The taste was mainly the same as the smell.
The mouthfeel was light bodied with a low carbonation, feels good, somewhat sticky.
Overall, for the most part, its a good one, easy to find practically anywhere. Also, FYI, if you find that you grab a sixer and don't like this one, throw it in some beer bread, you'll be surprised how well your beer bread will turn out.
