2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap at Barley’s Smokehouse - Pours golden with a short offwhite head that fades quick. Aromas of light bready malt. Flavor is bready but there is some fruity sweet flavor there as well and a whole bunch of alcohol. Mostly evident in the finish which is bready yet quite alcoholic. Definitely better than a budweiser but not exactly a micro either..

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at AleFest Dayton: Well the beer drinkers of Ohio have spoken and this is the result. Dark golden color with a thin white head that does not last. Minimal lacing too. The aroma is difficult to detect, but there is a bit of malt in there. Light-bodied and clean with mild malt and fruit flavors. The finish is short and sweet. While I can appreciate what A-B is trying to do here, the execution leaves something to be desired.

Tap at hotel in downtown Cincinnati. Poured dark amber with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate malty aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish. Better than my expectations.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2006 Fruity,yeasty and slightly sulphur aroma. Initially tart, moving quickly to stock lager bittering. Medium body. Very clear, solid gold. Finish is a resurgent bitterness. Sweetens up a bit as it warms. Clean, but unremarkable. On tap, Winking Lizard, Cleveland.
