2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Small off-white head atop a crystal clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, bread, cookie dough, toffee. Taste is medium sweet, bread and caramel up front, but then turns wet cardboard, seltzer water. Watery light-medium body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sparkling clear, deep golden lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Malty, grainy aroma. The flavor matches the aroma, but is too thin and a touch nondescript. Light flavors of grain and lemon. Light-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Short, watery finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a hazy, medium orange color with a smaller white head. Malty aromas of caramel and toffee. Bread in the tastes on top of the caramel. Lightly sweet. Smells better than the tastes. Watery and thin body. This one started out looking good then went to smelled OK to tasted not so good to ending with body bordering on nasty. Nice downward spiral. Not one to seek out.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear deep coppery brownish, with ruby edges. Nose is caramel malt, brown sugar, vinous fruit. Tastes caramel malty, with vinous fruit notes. Medium palate heft, with a bit of a lack of balance and complexity. Not a repeater for me.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear copper coloured body with a super-thin off-white head. Aroma of clean hops, caramel, pale malt and some fresh apples/peaches. Light-bodied; Mild malt taste, short sweet flavours roaming up front and a good bland hoppiness in the taste. Aftertaste is non-existant & watery. Overall, about what I expected-a pretty bad beer. Not recommended at all! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liqours in Washington, D.C. on 16-October-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from a variety six pack from EZ Liquors. Pours a clear red orange with a small off white foamy head that quickly disipates. Aroma of vegtables, old corn, musty basement and wet leather. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a smooth watery finish. Flavor of some amber malts, watered down caramel, and biscuit. This beer sure won’t knock your socks off, well maybe the aroma will now that I think about it.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) Amber lager? Who are they trying to fool? Pours medium yellow in color with a small, white head that quickly shrinks to a partial sheen. Lightly sweet aroma is totally overrun by wet cardboard, so the nose is pretty unpleasant. The very same cardboard also dominates the lightly sweet flavor, as I really canít identify any malt or hops at work here. And wow, the watery, cardboard finish is really terrible. This is just bad stuff. And Iím surprised because they call it an amber lager. I never imagined it would be a pale lager, and a bad one at that. This really gives macro swill a run for itís money.
