More amber than red. Somewhat of a yeast-heavy nose. Mid to full-bodied front front followed by a surprisingly grainy mid. Short hop finish that lingers. Thoroughly enjoyable.

NOt a bad beer from the american boys...I need a little more body and punch, but otherwise tasty and smooth.

Too often this is the best offering available in a bar. Sad, really. It does have some malt and hop character, but no sustained flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2008 A bit of a pleasant surprise. Very enjoyable beer. Will look for it again. Malty nose and flavor. Nice red appearance.

So hereís a good head to head challenge - this and Michael Sheaís. Both are syrupy and relatively tasteless but this one is a tad more carbonated and has a bit of burnt cardboard in the flavor, so yeah, itís more offensive.
