2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12/23/12. 12oz bottle from Warehouse in Albany, GA. Clear light red/amber pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring but laces surprisingly well. Mute aroma with a touch of caramel and chocolate and not much else. Light flavor, again with a touch of caramel and chocolate, and a certain mustiness. "Strongly hoppy flavor" ...hahahahaha.

Bottle. Poured deep amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were mildly malty, some doughy bread, caramel, hardly any hop flavor bitterness. Nice but forgettable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Buttery toffee malt aroma. Amber with small head. Mildly sweet toffee malt and bitter herbal hops flavor. Not horrible but not a fan of the flavor combination.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought this at VG’s market in Brighton Michigan. Nice copper color when pouring, although not much head. Aroma of malts and a faint caramel, but hardly any hops. Malty and caramel flavor, still no hops. Being at 5.2%, it seems pretty light both on palate and taste.
At 99 cents a bottle, a few of these could easily go well with an outdoor, late afternoon summer BBQ.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma pretty faint. Surprising hop notes that nicely balances the sweet malts. This beer had a refreshing quality to it that I enjoyed.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty thin, watery; not much flavor. Slightly malty, more like a lager than a decent amber. Hardly any hoppiness. Aroma is malty, bready. Not terrible but not one I’d seek out.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a rusty color with a bubbly white two finger head. Very transparent. A bready nose covers up a faint caramel smell. Taste is mostly malty with a slight hint of hops. Almost no hop flavor. Palate is very thin and watery. Overall this is not a great beer but for a buck it might work in a pinch.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A traditional American amber with a balanced profile that showcases mild caramel malts while letting the fruity ale yeast do its magic. Hops provide nice juicy notes with enough bitterness to balance. Pours a clear amber with a small one finger small bubbled white head. Clean and a good sessioner with greazy pizza.
