Nice color to the body, with some head, but this is gone way too soon to leave a little spotty head on the surface of the beer, but no lacing. Color is a deep red mahogany.
Nose has some caramel malts but not much at all.
Dryish and really quite bland. This drinks like a watered down brown ale, but without the malty, nutty flavors that one might expect. Flavor is just not quite there. It does improve somewhat on warming, but still lacks body and character.
Too thin for me, with a little bitterness and alcohol in the finish.
