My first experience with a commemorative or seasonal brew. It was nice, not too far from Extra Gold.

Had this beer on 1/6/2006, it was from the 2005’-2006’ bottling. Aroma is malty and a bit toasted. Color is a crisp brown with good carbonation a thin head. Taste is mildly toasted and crisp. Starting with a light/medium body it goes down with a crisp clean feel. Finish comes in with a nice roasted malt flavor that is backed by an easy bitterness. Its nice to drink but not as rich as I like to see a Winter Brew.

Has a nice caramel undertone to the flavor, was suprised when I first tried this one. Has a good finish with a slight bitter aftertaste. Overall a good seasonal brew!

Bottle. Pours a deep red body with nice head. Aroma is off - malt, caramel. Flavor is sweet with malt, light caramel, old hops. The bitterness seems to overwhelm it.

Same as Coors Original with a heavier body. A head that as a faint aroma, but nothing special.

It was an old bottle with a date of January 2006. It shows no signs of age however. There was a sound of escaping gas when I removed the cap, and the beer is well carbonated. The beer is amber and there are lots of bubbles and a long lasting head. Aroma is pure malt. Flavor is more malt as well, with a light addition of cinnamon and nutmeg. I would call this a Vienna, and it is actually a good beer, even for being old.

The Dan Journal #12. Tasted May 2006. Filtered and ruby. Trace of white head. Toasty, soggy grainy nose. Nutty and malt dominated. Cocoa and caramel notes. Oily and slick. Sweet with notes of raisins and toast. Finish is lively and mildly bitter. Slight citrus and sugary blast. Short lived finish. But not that bad.

About the only mass production beer I ever glance through the supermarket coolers for. First bought it in college when invited to a Christmas party - impressed some of the girls who were used to the guys showing up with Keystone. I ended up marrying one of those girls so it was definitely worth it in that sense. Now she lets me buy much higher quality beer.
