Pours a thick head over sexy looking copper ale. Aromas of vegtables and possibly candy. Taste is easy hops and caramel. Malts are minimal. This is a very drinkable, usually a very fairly priced, beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Malt aroma of caramel and cereal. Slight touch of grass hops. Appearance is clear amber in color with thin white head. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Beer is light bodied with a fairly thin texture. Soft carbonation. Over all ok light tasting beer. Basically a lawn mowing beer. Pretty plain Jane.

This is really not bad if there is absolutely no craft on the menu. There is a nice aroma of caramel, toffee and roasted malt. Taste is pretty much all malts: caramel and toffee standing out. Fairly smooth and inoffensive. Solid for the style.

I really appreciate the heritage behind this brew, but I think Coorsí process for mass production has just made the whole experience bland. Although I prefer this to most domestic lagers, and I really do appreciate the malted flavor this adds, I still find myself wishing for more.

Itís maybe been 15 years since Iíve had one of these. Itís actually pretty decent. For me if itís a easy drinking amber lager with no off tastes itís a good beer. Slight hop, caramel, malt, there are better amber lagers but this was worth the nostalgia and better than expectations.

jsporrer (38) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Pours a nice reddish color with a descent aroma. Taste is smooth with little harshness or bitter aftertaste. It is enjoyable to drink. Nothing special but better than your average beer.

foyle (290) - Wyoming, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a thick off white head that falls moderately with some very light lacing. Head retention is good throughout the drink. Color is clear reddish-amber with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: malt is quite dominate with whole wheat bread and caramel. There is an earthy hop presence in the background. Mouthfeel: fairly light and frothy with a quick somewhat dry finish. Flavor: caramel and a strong bread presence with a mild earthy hops in the finish. Overall: a decent and drinkable brew.

Not a bad beer, not bitter at all. And not as light as one of the lite beers with a watery taste.
