DYCSoccer17 (3327) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2008
12 ounce bottle purchased from BevMo in Vacaville. The 6-pack was on sale for a mere $2.99. Aroma has lots of cereal grains and toasted maltiness. Light biscuit aromas. A little nuttiness with a light honey-like sweetness. No hops detected. Transparent orange-twinged golden color with a small-medium off-white head. Scant lacing. Starts with lightly toasted malts, hints of cereal-like grains. Finishes with mild spicy, metallic, grassy hope bitterness. Light-bodied. Bland and painfully boring. A stupid gimmicky beer. Up there with Funny Cide Light Lager.

Pours a clear amber with a thin creme head. Nose is barely roasted. Flavor is about like a standard american lager. Very mild earthy tones that almost tastes a bit dirty. Overall this is an okay beer. Easy to drink, but nothing to seek out for any wild character.

Beer smells a little macroíy. The pour is clear little darker than a bud, with sudsy head. The flavor on this is more lager than pale ale. Iím not going to say the beer is awful. Not something I would buy again. There is some flavor, roasty malt, but not really anything Iím too fond of. I can taste some hops so i guess that puts it above macro brew. Sale at bevmo, thank god I didnít pay full for it! Donít really know what I was expecting for something that says "beer of the champions" brewed and bottled by MBF CO. I guess I could get down with this watching a fight in vegas or something....

This copper ale poured with almost no head. The flavor is very thin with initial maltiness and slightly bitter finish - otherwise unremarkable.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle from BevMo. Dark golden in color upon pouring. Very bready aroma. Some roasted malts and caramel along with a little hint of hops. Very dry caramel maltiness dominates. Some hops in the finish. Kind of interesting, but more of a cheap pale ale.

I admit that i bought BoXer Brews CruiserWeight Ale the first time because of the packaging. Very catchy red & black colors with shadow boxers on the 6 pack. I guess you can tell Iím a girl, but I am a true beer drinker. And i love this beer. The flavors are just perfect and the amber color is quite beautiful. Over all, it has a mild roasted malt taste and a clean finish. What i really like is that itís full of flavor, but not heavy.

A light sweet flavor on the front, subtle roasted malt in the middle and a crisp bitter on the back. The taste is unique, and satisifying with a beautiful amber color. I had the beer with food and found that it complimented the food flavors very well. This light amber/pale ale falls somewhere between the bland commercial beers and the overwhelming micro beers. The flavors are there to be noticed, but they donít demand your attention on every drink. I liked it a lot.

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Aroma of caramel malt. Clear, brilliant amber color with a white head that rapidly ringed. Thin to medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor of roasted caramel malt with some balancing bitter. The finish is dry, and there is some herbal bitter. Itís clean and refreshing. Suggests Newcastle Brown in a way. Pretty good for a one off. Far better than "Duffers".
