Poured from a bottle as a lovely deep brown with clear ruby highlights. There was scant head.

The aroma was of malt with a suggestion of hops. The taste was of roasty malt, medium sweet. There was astringency in the aftertaste. The body was slightly thin but still good, as was the level of carbonation.

Overall, I liked this beer, although the astringency seemed to increase as the beer warmed. I'll look for this beer again.
