Pours clear held up to a bright light. Half of a glass of light tan, frothy foam has average or so retention, surprisingly leaving very little evidence of it's existence.
Aroma doesn't have any vanilla as was expected. Roasted malt is muted and about all to be had.
Taste has roast, coffee, and maybe a touch of smoke but there isn't much of any of them. Once again no vanilla. Lingering sweetness fights the dryness.
Light body as it came across thin but a strong carbonation seems forced to give try and give it more.
My first official beer from Nebraska. It is okay. Nothing great and nothing really wrong. I would call this a porter light: just not enough to get me going. Definitely easy to drink but too mild. Enjoy!
An infusion of an old-world beer style and contemporary soul. Smooth, dark and roasted with highlights of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Pair with Indian or Asian cuisine, beef, and chocolate or vanilla desserts.
Brewed with American, Canadian and English grown barley, American hops, Madagascar vanilla beans and natural vanilla extract.
