A pinkish red amber in color, thin pinkish white head, left quickly,
S sweet malty, hint of salty
T sweet, bready, "beery"
M lots of carbonation, malty bready after taste lingers in roof of mouth.
O Pretty standard/vanilla (un-unique) amber, not too special, but not bad. Had on tap at the Big Fish in Grapevine Texas.
