Exile Brewing Gigi

This 5.0% ABV dark lager is from the Exile Brewing Company of Des Moines, Iowa. They are a brewpub that recently began bottling their beers. 

The beer pours dark brown and fizzy, a lot like a cola. There is a short and very short-lived head of bubbly tan foam. The aroma has some dark roasted malt, very nutty, a touch of caramel sweet. The taste follows the aromas directly, a nice mix of dark roasted malts, very nutty, hazelnut, with some sweetness, although the finish is mostly dry. It is very easy drinking, with a tingling carbonation, but the mouth is a tad too watery, especially compared to its nice flavors.
