Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- slightly cloudy, brownish-orange color
- what little head there was disappeared in an instant

The Aroma:
- sweet, malty aroma

The Taste:
- slight bitterness
- slight sweetness
- slight carbonation

The Verdict: - Slightly below average. It starts off as inviting to the nose and the front of the mouth, but then loses any momentum quickly and whithers away to nothing.
Adam's Notes
The Look:
- copper
- small head thinning to thin ring with islands

The Aroma:
- quite sweet and a bit hoppy

The Taste:
- sweet like the nose
- couldn't drink too many of these
- not really super hoppy, but, hops are there

The Verdict: Eh...pretty typical of their beer. Nothing to write home about.
