A light beer with deep color and robust flavor. A highly drinkable amber ale brewed with Pacific Northwest Cascade Hops and a quality distinct to Henry's since 1858.

Bottle... tasted more like a Golden Ale to me, light hop character and very sweet, not very intricate, but I feel like it was trying to be. Just not quite the hardiness I look for in a beer. Decent for a cheap macro, but would rather skip this one.

This did have a light amber color and white head, but went downhill from there. Very bland, and far to watery for my taste, I wont bother with it again.

Let me first say that I did NOT pay for this beer. Fake malt backbone that tastes like cornbread. Supposedly cascade hops, but I know what that smells and tastes like, and they didn't use much if any. What a shame.

Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), lightly hoppy (grapefruit, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Poor aftertaste kills this one's score, but otherwise it's just kind of bland.

What kind of crap is this? My roomate is short on funds so he bought the stuff, but I don't suggest buying in under any other circumstance. Watery malt mixed with that typical Macro taste - which shows where the brewery is going.$$$

Another Henry's beer which excels only in mediocrity. Nothing really worth noting except that I would never buy this beer, but i'd drink it if one was offered to me...not that that's saying much, but it isn't as horrible as some.

for a light beer, it’s not bad, but that’s like saying, for a D student, he’s not that bad. No horrible qualities, but the light here means just that...light on flavor, hops, and body."
