Wasn’t expecting much, as I picked this up as a split sixer from Trader Joe’s for $1.09, but was actually quite surprised.
Great looking pour. Fantastic deep brown color and a very nice, large and substantial head that leaves some nice lacing.
Aroma and tastes are halfway between an amber/red and brown ale. Some dry character as one would expect from an amber/red, but also some nice malt which gives it a little more brown ale character. The smell and the tastes are definitely not huge (it’s slightly light in its feel), but they are good enough to make the beer very drinkable and enjoyable.
Not a classic by any means, but a very good value, drinkable brew that I was delighted to try.
