Sweet, palatable, easy finish. Wish we had it down in NC, one of my favorites. Similar to leinenkugel with the flavor notes and high quality.

Drank from a 12oz. bottle. Not very impressed by the aroma or taste. Had a burnt taste to it.

Drank from a 12 oz bottle. An interesting amber. I'm not sure if the sour taste I'm experiencing is burnt caramel or oxidation from age. Not my favorite. Maybe it's better on tap.

Clear medium-dark amber with a nice 1/4" head that lasts awhile, and splotches of lace. Taste is mainly caramel malt with a minimum of sweetness, followed by carbonation and a touch of hops at the finish. Not complicated, not memorable, but entirely drinkable.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a small amount of head. Light malty hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Good bready smell. Taste is initially creamy medicinal and licking sweet. More personality than a lager fer sure. has a few rude ale characteristics. Same on finish; almost cloying.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Candied, woody APA/Amber aroma. Almost-clear, woody amber, good bottle cap, decent label, twistoff. A little bland and starch-watery, not very bitter, nutty sweetness. Meh, fair. ABC Betton.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4/20/12. 12oz bottle. Clear light amber pour, almost a bit orange, with a thick, creamy khaki head that cuts but lingers and laces in rings. Mild aroma of toasted bread, caramel, and grains. Plain, but unoffensive. Sweeter flavor up front with plenty of caramel which transfers into fresh bread and a bit of a fruity/floral aspect. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 This is an enjoyable amber. Nice caramel malty aroma and a clear red appearance with a soft white head. Taste mirrors the aroma and appearance. Notes of cereal and bread with a slight caramel sweetness. Drinkable session amber.
