Clear red, no head. No taste or aftertaste. Fresh enough but is boring. Lame is the word.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
It has an amber colored body with some visible carbonation. The head on top is light, fluffy and tall. It is off white in color and it is slows to fade, leaving some spotty lacing on the glass as I drink. The aroma is full of lemony citrus and leafy hops with sweet candy like sweet malt flavors underneath. Also I am picking up a light mineral like presence. The flavor has leafy and mineral hop notes are up first with some smooth buttery notes mixed in. It has sweet honey and caramel maltiness in the middle and the finish has moderate hop bitterness and lemony/orange citrus hops as well as more odd mineral notes. Overall this flavor notes seem rather light and a bit boring for the style. It has a light to medium body with lively, almost fizzy carbonation.

Aroma is thin, sweetish malts. The flavor is nutty malts, artificial flavoring and a semi-sweet finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Note: this revew was on the same brand brewed by Local Color Brewing Co., Michigan...Purchased as part of an Beers of America Historical Collection 12 pack, beers contract brewed to their original recipes. Poured with a light head, with copper color and medium lacing. Aroma is right in the wheelhouse for an American amber. Flavor is clean, appropriately bitter...a nice break from the German and Belgian styles I’ve been drinking.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Amber body. White head that leaves instantly. No lacing. Smell is of a very small amount of soy sauce and vegetable soup. Taste is blah. Some malt with sour fruit. Palate is way too watery. Overall I honestly can say I won’t ever drink this again....actually I kind of want to drain pour this but hate the thought of wasted alcohol makes me sad. I hate these tough choice of life!

Pours an average amber with an aroma of chocolate banana and light hay. Flavor is plastic sweet bread and lightly malted cheese. Tingly mouthfeel. Bleh.

this pours a dark amber to brown color with very little head. the aroma is very malty and little in anything else. the flavor is very bland of mainly cheap malt. there is no complexity in it. the palate is very watery and nothing to this beer, i would not recommend

Ewww...this one tastes a little rotten. Predominant flavor of apple. Rancid egg like smell. Weak, sour aftertaste. Watery texture. Came in a gift pack so I hope the other 11 are better than this.

Clear amber. Small white head. Aroma of caramel, soap, and adjuncts. Tastes the same, with water. Thin, phony, and boring.
