Not much in the aroma department. faint fruit, hops.
Light Copper Color; zero head.
Notes of raisin and something sourish, maybe grapefruit, slight alcohol finish, despite being only 5.4%.
**

Not bad, but not what I expected.

This pours a clear, amber color with a slight head. The aroma is malty with a touch of spice. The taste is fairly thin, light and easy drinking. There is a sweet, malty flavor as expected with this brew. Pretty decent, much better than the rating would suggest.
