It comes in a light golden amber color.

The flavor has a big malty and toasted flavor. There's a good bitterness on the finish. It has a decent mouthfeel. I prefer Brooklyn Lager with its more refreshing and hop flavor. Despite the bitterness, it still has that big maltiness.

It's quite a decent beer compared to the American Adjunct Lagers, but still a bit lacking for me.
