2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (apricot).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, metallic.
I was prepared for something awful based on the label art, but it’s merely simplistic, sweet, and metallic...no glaring flaws to laugh at, other than the aforementioned godawful label design...the center of which looks like a 9-year-old’s unfinished drawing (and might actually be exactly that). If I was a biker I’d be embarrassed that this was marketed for my subculture.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear amber with really no head at all. Aroma of honey, bread, malt sweetness and a hint of hops. Pretty balanced overall. Sweet flavor and a dry finish. Just a slight hint of butter coming through.

@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Clear amberish-copper with a foamy white head. Nose is biscuity and with a wee note of toffee. Flavor is light and simple with biscuity caramalt sweetness and little else. Uncomplicated and easy to drink.

Aroma is a mess, taste is bad. Too sweet, hops and malt are giant mess. I didn’t expect much oh well!!!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
No real aroma to speak of...light caramel sweetness in the beginning with a light body. Light lacing. A session beer that does not stand out among amber beers.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 Bottle. Pours a light amber with off-white head. Aroma has light caramel with a touch of grain. Flavor seems a bit rough for what this is....notes of caramel, toffee, earthy, just a hint of sweetness, maple with a peppery finish. Light-medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. I’d finish it.
