cblado (247) - Washington, USA - APR 11, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color, some head. Aroma is mostly malt, some hops. Flavor is very bitter from start to finish, not much else going on. Palate feels thin. Overall it’s okay.

loubar (88) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 22, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Nose of yeast and toffee. Taste of lightly roasted malt, caramel and toffee. Not crisp but more malty and buttery. Slightly sweeter yet mouth feel remains light. An easy drinker with no bitterness. Bready aftertaste. Pleasant and enjoyable. Love the low ABV.

12 oz bottle pour. Pours a darker copper color with a thin head. Sweet, doughy aroma. Caramel malt flavors, pretty bready. A little sugary with medium carb. This beer wasn’t great, but not bad either. Glad I tried this.

As lagers go, not bad and much better than most readily available draught beers in the USA. Bland taste, OK carbonation.

Flavors aren’t offensive, just really bland. Light notes of caramel and grains. Very faint hops.

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, golden copper color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: caramel, wheat, light floral hops. Palate: light body, average carbonation, slightly watery texture. Taste: sweet caramel into ever so slight floral hops taste, finish is thin. Overall, nothing special, and even worse for the style.

"an average amber brew...more on the malty side, but even the malt does nothing that gets me too excited. the best ambers for me are well balanced,or have one stand out characteristic...this is neither."
