Type: 16-oz. can (pint) Glass: Lagunitas mason jar From: Baronís Market in Alpine, Calif. Price: $2.99 for a 4-pack Purchased: Oct. 19, 2014 Consumed: Oct. 19, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel, amber, clear color with five fingers of khaki, frothy head, which settled nicely. Lots of bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Sporadic spots of lacing along the sides of the glass. Average-to-above average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.88) Smelled kind of nasty initially, but then got better. Got caramel, toffee, honey, cooked green vegetables, buttery malts, plum, roasted woody notes and slight menthol. (Smell - 2.88) Tasted kind of nasty initially again. Got buttery cooked vegetables, caramel, toffee, slight butterscotch, honey, honey wheat, slight grape juice and light plum. (Taste - 2.88) Medium body. Oily-to-thin texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.00) Not the worst Iíve ever had, but certainly a good value for $2.99 a 4-pack on pints. (Overall - 3.00) 2.97 69 C

can. Amber with two finger head. Nice looking beer, but thatís it. Sweet caramel malt and nothing else. Completely one dimensional.

As a Cheers fan, I had to buy and try just to do it. Well, the joy of seeing it in the store and going "look at this TV flashback" was far more enjoyable than the beer itself. Both myself and fellow beer drinking friend found it difficult to choke down the entire can. Nostalgic value: High Taste Value: Pass ---Rated via Beer Buddy

16 oz can. Mine says itís brewed in Rochester, NY, so that means contract brewed by Genesee. Pours a clear, very pale orange/amber with a pretty decent white head. Aroma is boiled corn and some spice. Thin texture with an odd vegital taste that merges with sweet caramel malt and closes with a metallic character. Little to no hops. Not so good.

When I saw this beer I thought it was a souvenir or gimmick but its pretty good. In a time when everything new I see is an IPA I was glad to taste something different. Its best ice cold, has a good looking creamy pour, and after the first 2 who gives a damn about character anyway.

Iíve had better amber ales with a little more to it. Pours a clear brown with an off white head. Smell is just sugar and corn. Taste is malt sweetness and small hint of roast flavors, other than that thereís not much to.this brew. Still easy to.drink.

Lite caramel and mild grain aroma. Mild caramel, mild lemon, and mild fruit. Lite bodied, mild dry carbonated zest, and mild bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can into a pint. Picke this one up in Rochester, NH en route to the cabin. It was like $4 for 4 of them, you get what you pay for. Head is large and frothy, which is cool to look at, but took too longto simmer down. Color is a medium brown orange amber, light appearance in the sun, and brozed on the back side. Taste is malty, slight cascade hop profile, but not much, weak build here, corn, tinny, blah taste, nothing that prolific. Theres a light honey presence in the aroma as well as the taste, but skunkyness reins supreme here. But, on this fathers day, this beer seems out of sight right now. lawn is down, kids are chilling,and norms amber ale is flowing. Classic.
