L: crystal clear, grain gold... keeps a bit of foam smattered around the edge

S: sweetish, mildly-toasted cereal grain, dull dried apple... very low wow-factor

T: notable degree of baked grain right away... lightly metallic, rain water off stone... old, dry apple juice, with old malt following it... almost a tannic, vaguely tart bite in the finish... brief, faintly medicinal alcohol flash every few sips

F: not particularly crisp or spritzy... what i've come to expect in this 'style' - dry, thickish malt body, somewhat dull, but doesn't exactly weigh you down

O: i don't know... not 'bad'... not really 'good'... this belongs in the 'malt liquor' category for sure - more similar to an Old E than a Bud... the amount of malt flavor is somewhat surprising and welcome - expected something a tad thinner, more watery
