CanIHave4Beers (3539) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2011
From a big plastic bottle marked "Big Mug Amber" Pours a bright orange color, which reminds me that it’s not only here in the US that the word "Amber" gets thrown around with reckless abandon. The head on the beer is very loose and doesn’t stick around very long. The aroma is malty sweet and has some alcohol, but it’s not really offensive, just boring and a little weird. The flavor is similar to the aroma, malty sweet with just a light zing of hops, some grainy flavors along with some cornflake corny sweetness that seems to be the focus of this beer. It’s really actually very easy to drink and I can see where the appeal would exist for a bright colored sweet smooth pale lager. It’s not really for me though.

Can, as "Big Mug Amber Beer". Pale yellow, white head. Nose is metallic malts, taste is slightly sweet, more metallic malts, weird honey-apple notes. Not offensive, but pretty nondescript.

MacBoost (1478) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Industrial lager smell. Corn, adjuncts, sugar in the nose. Pours a pale yellow with no head. Tastes like every other industrial lager from eastern europe. Shitty. Worthless. This is one of the worst beers i’ve ever had.

thirstyrabbit (1362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2012
0,5l can as "Big Mug Amber", redirecting here. Typical light golden lager body. The big bottle version must be something different, because this is certainly nothing close to "dark" as other reviewers have described it. Light grainy and citric aroma. Taste is clean and neutral. Low on hops. Doesn’t have much taste and is therefore pretty drinkable.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - APR 3, 2009
A beer brewed by Baltika exclusively for Moldovan market (alternate name/label Bolshaya Kruzhka, "a big mug", for Transnistrian region). 10%, PETS 2.5 and 1.5 L. A pale watery sweetish lager, the cheapest beer in Moldova, as I know.

supremely drinkable, rather smooth palate, low carbonation, quickly-dissipating head, really cheap ($2.69 for an 85 ounce [2.5 L] bottle). Basically it’s caramel soda to share w/friends (Brighton Beach)

Label said "Big Mug Amber". 51 ounce plastic bottle for $2.49 (but I’ve seen it on sale for $1.99). Pours a slightly dark amber. Head is rich, thick, and slightly off white. But it dies fairly quickly. Smells sweet like a caramel sticky bun. Flavor is of caramel. Not as much malt as I expected and little hops. It’s also low on the alcohol content. Incredibly smooth!!The flavor has a quick finish with very little aftertaste. It has the mouth feel of a light beer.But overall this is very easy drinking. I’d put this up against any of the macro light beers on the market.
