COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Appearance is a hazy orange-ish copper color with minimal head. Aroma is fruity, mostly orange, with malt scents as well. Taste follows the nose, a nice balance of citrus, light hops, caramel, and malt.

Not my favorite, but a perfectly decent beer for setting around a barbecue or a campfire on a cool fall evening.

Poured from a bottle straight into a globe glass results results in a medium head that quickly diminishes into nothing with very little lace. The taste and mouthfeel are typical of what you’d expect from a pale ale, although a little heavy on the hops. I’m certainly no fan of the "extreme hops" trend but this beer is still tolerable and enjoyable.

Very pretty color. Pours a bronze amber color. Nice head. Tastes like a regular amber. a tad sweet and not too bold or intimidating. Nice after taste. Overall a very enjoyable beer.

SUPER malty! Reminds me of several homebrews in the american ale style. Not enough hops to balance the sweetness. Not a favortite of mine but does have it’s merits as an old standby. Quality ingredients make up for a lack of complexity.

Clear, reddish pour with a minimal head. Clear notes of caramel, but very subtle overall flavor. Clean, smooth finish. A very nice beer!

Great Brewery, but obviously not their top of the line beer. This is a great beer to introduce to a Bud drinker as a real beer. It would have more mass appeal for the novice, and that is why I think they used this as the house beer for the Grand Hotel. (Big Porch Ale). This is a very safe choice to serve to the inexperienced.

Amber / light brown color with small white, frothy head. Has a slight caramel smell & taste to it. Bitterness is just right and does not linger.

Very nice color which is copper looking. The beer has a excellent taste but not overpowering. Very good beer.
