Light amber, thin head, vanishes. Aroma was of just toasted malt.

Taste was weak, a little sweet and bitter, couldn't decide if it was a malt liquor or an amber ale. Toffee, well carbonated, almost excessively, harsh bitter aftertaste is the main mouthfeel component, and its not all that hoppy so who knows.
