This is a very nice looking beer. Dark red / purple clear with 1 finger head and great retention
Smells nice too. Malty, sweet mostly but very nice. I really like the flavor profile on this one. Very nice malty sweet and bready upfront with a slight hop crisp finish. Very well balanced beer. Perhaps could be a tad thicker and sweeter in flavor but overall its pleasant overall. A very nice sessionable beer with flavor and highly recommend. Nothing mind blowing but if its at a pub, I'd be happy to order one.
