I dont mind this one at all, not the best cheap drinker in my opinion but for the price its one of the best, can guzzle a lot of it in a summertime. The carbonation is a bit annoying and dont like it extremely cold, let it sit for a bit in the warmth so all the rest of the flavours come out.

Solid beer. A nice red. Better than I expected. Roasty malty and easy to drink.

Canít believe Iíve never rated this. Everyone knows what it looks like and what it tastes like, so I wonít waste my time. The biggest thing with this beer is the difference between the draft and bottle. Much prefer the draft.

Bottle. Clear amber color, small white coca cola head. Aroma of light caramel. Taste is very malt forward and sweet.

Sarlacc83 (900) - Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Free ticky tick tick. A: Cloudy red with a thin white head. Lacing. N: Pine, biscuit, leaves, hint of honey and heather. T: Bigger sweetness. Not much bitterness - which surprised me. Clean. M: Medium body, light carbonation, no alchol. O: Clean and easy to drink. Definitely on the sweet side, though. A clean and uninteresting beer that exists.

Bork (318) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Disappointing amber with an acidic fruitiness and foamy mouthfeel docking points. Yet another failed macro with a dishonest marketing pitch.

Dark in color, but light in taste. Refreshing and light, not thick, taste like a beer

JDBaker11058 (1334) - Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Appearance: medium amber red, creamy light tan head. Aroma: roasted barley, caramel, hint of nuts and leather. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: lingering lightly toasty sweetness. Notes: Ok, I donít hate this beer. Average, but a decent enough choice when selection is limited. Itís the Stella Artois of amber lagers.

Poured from a longneck into a frosted mug. Mahogany color with thin off white head. Slight lacing. Smells malt, wheat, corn, toast. Taste of malt and hops, nice sweet aftertaste. One of my favorites, I havent had one in a while Iíve been so busy trying all these new craft beers. The price has come down on a six pack, so I will have to include this in my "malt diet" more often!
