    My tasting notes suck, But here's a shot at it. Go buy some and add your own tasting notes to compare to mine.

    Appearance - Very clear. A nice red hue with a thin head the dissipates quickly and laces ever so slightly.

    Smell - I have a bit of a cold and my sense of smell is lacking. I really couldn't smell much here, just a whiff of malt.

    Taste - Smooth mild crisp malt up front fading to a sweeter caramel flavor. No hop flavor that I could pick out.

    Mouthfeel - Light smooth mouthfeel with low carbonation. Smoothed out even more as it warmed.

    Overall a very clean malty example of the style. I love this beer.

    It's obviously a very well balanced beer. Check out that picture.

    Also note the Greg LaMond bike in the background. He was calling Lance Armstrong a doper before it was cool.

    Nice work on the tasting notes, it's really tough to put tastes and subtleties into words, and that is without a cold! I usually take written notes during, then after I can get into detail and try to add to my original thoughts to better mesh with what I was tasting.

    I wouldn't know who that was even if he introduced himself to me.
