Although this beer does look nice in a glass, like a typical amber beer, it's looks do nothing for the taste. The smell should have clued me into something being off but I drank the beer anyway. Upon first taste it is harsh and acidic. As I drank more the harsh overly hoppy flavor seemed to get worse. This has to be the worst beer I have ever tasted, and I have had some bad beers. Luckily I got a pint for free. I would have been very upset had I had to pay for it. Never again...

A: Pours a crystal clear amber with 2 fingers width of tan colored head. Head dissipates down at a moderate, to a thin film that remains throughout the drink. Lots of honeycomb lacing.

S: Some sweet and some almost smokey malts. Some adjunty- type aromas. Not much many characters at all.

T: Follows the nose in that the malt bill is the dominant player. Theres a burnt grass/herbaceous character. Some hops come out in the flavor, but not a lot. Just some subtle bitterness.

M/D: Medium body, appropriate carbonation, drinkability is average.

O: Meh. Not something Id probably buy again. Id drink if it were given to me though.
