2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Awkwardly sweet and malty. Nothing really going for it. Thoroughly mediocre. Didnít even commit to a glass for it. Imagine a Sam Adams Boston Lager with a heavier body and some sugar and zero hops. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Curious four pack in the store today found its way home with me.
Pours a deep golden color with a good sized off white head that persists for a while. Smells of bready and pilsner malt with hints of diacytyl and sulfur. Little to no hop presence. The flavor is sweet, maybe a bit too sweet with honey and crystallized sugar. Light pilsner malt flavor with little hop presence. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation, and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. I really wasnít expecting much out of a gimmicky beer like this and I was not let down. Overly sweet maltiness and little else.
