UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Bottle. A- Sharpie markers, alcohol, malty, coffee. A- Amber color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Coffee, chocolate, creamy, malty, slightly sweet, slightly bitter. P- Light body, milky texture, average carbonation, flat finish. O- Odd aroma. Quite malty and thin but a decent flavor. Not really sure how I feel about this one. Not a favorite, but not horrible either.

A nice slightly better-than-average amber lager. Aroma is a faint light maltiness, maybe a little roasty accent. Appearance is an interesting amber red color befitting the name, not much head but good lacing. Taste is a simple but pleasant maltiness with a mild hoppy contrast. Unfortunately it seems there also is some distracting adjunct sweetness present. Medium bodied, not filling. OK, I'll try this again sometime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Poured from bottle into beer glass.The Aroma is of coffee. Dark Amber color that’s clear. Medium bitter taste again tastes kinda like coffee or chocolate. Medium body beer thin texture with lively carbonation and a bitter finish. Good beer will drink again worst thing is that there isn’t much smell to the beer but don’t be fooled there is quite a bit of flavor.

This is a pretty good lookin beer for the price and the taste isnt wow but delivers a sweet and smooth ride from beginning to the end, slight hint of hops, not bad!

Pours dark reddish-brown with a thin, white head that's gone pretty quick. No lacing to speak of. Nose is malt. Taste is sweet and malty. Slight presence of hop. Not quite what I would call medium bodied, but it does have a little texture. Drinkable. Definite a step up from Coors signature stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had with pizza with Bill and Jennifer. I pretty much concur with this review. "It is what it is, and maybe just a bit better. No real aroma, but the color is inviting, and it does have more flavor and is creamier than the fare is normally group it with... coors, bud, etc" Some interest there because of the amber factor and I wouldn’t say it tastes bad. Medium mouthfeel. Just doesn’t compel me to have more.

One of my all time favorite go-to beers. Great taste, great drinkability whether you’re having it with dinner or playing beer pong with it. Nice red amber color, small amount of head,
