Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – The beer poured a medium brown color with hints of ruby. Upon pouring a smaller tan colored head is formed on the brew which faded relatively fast to leave only a light level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma was a mix of caramel and wheat. Mixed with these aromas was a light nutty and herbal smell as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter caramel malt with hints of roasted malt mixed within. Flavors of wheat bread mingle with these and as the taste advances more toward the middle flavors of a nutty flavor come to the tongue. The flavors to this point are all relatively light and at the end are joined by a lighter herbal hop taste, overall leaving a somewhat roasted yet oddly thin flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the thinner side with a carbonation level that was very average. A thicker creamier body would have likely suited the nutty and roasted flavors, helping to enhance them more.

Overall –Not really a brew I would recommend. It isn’t off in any way, but isn’t on in any way either.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours out a clear deep reddish brown color with a decent off white to light tan colored head that eventually fades to a ring. Some decent lacing.

Not much to the aroma. Mineral like lager yeast and a bit of sweet toasted malt.

The taste reflects the aroma. Mineral heavy water from the lager yeast and some sweet toasted malt. Finishes very light. Light bodied with ample carbonation.

Not much to get excited about, but fairly true to style.
