Pleasant is the best I can say to describe it. Nothing wrong here. I would take this over the Macro's but not enough to make it noticable over others

Rich, creamy head. Thick golden color. Slightly lighter flavor than expected. Nice bitterness but not too heavy. See? Truely good beer CAN be made in America.

Nice frothy head, clean smell. Excellent finish to a very smooth taste. Nothing very distinguishable, yet still an excellent beer.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 I hadn’t had this in a long time and totally forgot what it tasted like. Just had it last night and really appreciated it a lot more than I had in the past. Very nice aroma and full body flavor. I just wish it wasn’t so expensive.

I had this beer out of a bottle. It has a nice malty smell. The color is light amber. The head is cream colored. The taste is refreshing and balanced. It is not overwhelming by any means. It is a good beer for a large gathering as most would like this beer. It, however, has nothing that sets it apart.

Clear light amber. No floaties as opposed to the Liberty Ale. Small cream head. Nutty smell and flavor. Kind of like a brown ale. Carbonation. Average.

4.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A GREAT BEER. Beer pours a great bubbly dark amber with a light foamy head. Lacing is extensive all the way to the bottom of the glass. Head dissipates ever so slowly as you drink. A slightly bitter smooth flavor with rusty overtones. A well crafted brew, definetly worth the $9 for the six pack. Excellent. Aroma is ever so slight, but crisp. Not to much there as far as smell goes, but the taste more than makes up for it. The flavor leaves tougue slightly dry begging for another sip. Palate is strong and doesn't dissapear in between drinks.

Beer pours a lovelly crystal clear darkish amber with a creamy white head.
Nice clean aroma..slightly roasted malts and spicy hops detected.
Beer tastes a great sweet, creamt , light milk chocolaty with some small bitterness as an aftertaste, a well balanced beer.
Smooth on the palte but does rough up at the very end.
An American tradition and still a great beer.

Bottled. Nice amber/deep golden colour with a rocky head. Hoppy, smokey aroma. Toffee notes in the flavour, somewhat smokey. Nice bitter finish.
