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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Sprecher’s brewery gift shop in Glendale, WI. Slightly hazy light gold pour with a decent size initial white head that fades into a small soapy ring. Slight aroma of grain, caramel, and toffee. Medium to light palate, about the right carbonation. Taste is caramel, toffee, and kind of dusty/earthy - not altogether pleasant.

Clear amber with a quickly fading off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and malt. Hopless taste of caramel and malt, not much going on here. A touch dry and bland with a mild peppery finish.

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.

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.
