2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at beer tent in Winona, Minnesota. Alcohol was lowered to 3.2% which was unfortunate. Aroma was of malt, light caramel, and basically no hop bitterness. Flavor was quite watery with light malt and hop characters. Easy to drink beer but nothing to buy again. Drink a real beer because this is not one.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer pours a nice amber body with a plentiful white head. Nice creamy texture with plenty of caramel aroma and taste. It was a pretty nice beer for the price.

Bottle. Pours dark amber, small brief white head but nice lacing to the end. Aroma of fermenting yeast. Taste is slightly sweet to start, then metallic with caramel; finishes sour and tarry. Mouthfeel is thin.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, purchased at Trader Joe’s in Cary, NC. Pours copper/amber, with a medium whitish head, and some lacing. Aroma is malty, with some sweet caramel. Flavor is somewhat similar, with a slight malty caramel taste at the beginning, and then a decent hop-dry finish. A little thin, but I am surprised that the 4.2 abv doesn’t taste more watery.

NICE AMBER COLOR WITH A MALTY TASTE. A NICE MILD AFTER TASTE. A LITTLE BETTER THAN AVERAGE BEER.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A great name and a cool label. Too bad the beer inside the bottle is watery and bland. Drinkable yet highly forgettable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper color with some deep amber highlights. Nose is sweet and nutty with a bit of caramel. Light to medium body. A tad bitter in my opinion, it kind of clashed with the aromas.

12oz bottle, copper color, not nearly dark enough for amber, but this is a pleasant surprise, palatable by me and enjoyed by a lot more people, this light caramel colored beer is nice to drink with meals and easy to share with friends.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No amber color here, mine poured a coppery red with a small off-white head. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of bread dough. Tastes of nutty malt with a toasty, slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied with a slightly watery feel at times. It’s not bad and it’s also definitely not a pale lager.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Pours an amber color with a little bit of a fizzy head. Aroma of sweet caramel. Taste is much of the same, and somewhat one-dimensional. No off flavors, but nothing too exciting. Definitely not a pale lager though...
