Classic Amber pours a clear darken gold color, with a small head. There was a very subtle malt aroma; not really much of anything. The taste was subtle, strawy malts, with a yeasty like taste. A bit watery, but still crisp. Overall this isn't a bad beer, doesn't have that cheap taste some other red lagers have.

A friend left this beer over my house. It sat in my fridge for a few weeks before I was desperate enough to drink it.

I had really low expectations, and this beer did nothing to change that.

A: I poured into a pint glass. A slight reddish-tinge. Light amber. A loose, two finger head that dissipated rapidly.

S: Sweet bready. Slight malt.

T: Watery. One note. A little of the sweet malt coming through. Not horrible. Just not exceptional.

M: Actually coated my mouth nicely. Pleasant

O: I would probably not go out of my way to get this again, but it wasn't horrible. Very sessionable. If my friend happens to leave this in my fridge again, I will drink it. Not bad enough to throw out.
