Clear amber with thin tan-tinted head. Sweet caramel malt-heavy "lager" aroma and taste. Medium bodied with fairly light carbonation. It's drinkable.

Looks pale amber. Smell/taste is generic--cracker/biscuit, maybe. Seems to lean more towards malt than hops, but good balance. A little like Sam Adams maybe? Feel clean and light. Overall decent lager, good but unmemorable.

Average average average. Don't get too excited about this one! It reminds me of rolling rock a little bit, with an off taste throughout. Oh, well. At least we just had a sample of it.
