Drank from a can aboard Northwest Airlines. Presented with a good amber hue and nice head. But it has that airy aroma of a macro. At first I didn't distinguish much flavor, but a tinge of hop bitterness saved it from awfulness. Towards the end of the glass, as it warmed, more of a decent character and flavor shone through, but still an average beer.

The aroma’s a bit faint, sweet malt with a bit of graininess to it. Smooth and tasting of sweet caramel, dark toffee, and a light earthy/nutty bitterness, this amber/copper beer is a satisfying if unexciting drink.

bottle thanks to alexsdad. A clean golden amber pour. A nose of malt and light paper. A flavor that is sweet malt and a sourish bitter on the finish. A bit over carbonated and a tad thin but a good drinker.

Purchased several cases (cans) for our company picnic. Pours a clear carmale amber brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissolves to an almost clean with a fine film . Aroma of roasted multi-grainy caramel malt, some citrus zest and a touch of sour apple. Taste is highly carbonated, medium bodied with multi-grain dough and some light citrus peel flavors. Finish is dry, slightly musty with a faint pecan flavor in the aftertaste.

Medium orange colored body with a thick white head. The aroma is potatoes with some green bell peppers and a hin of caramel. The taste is light caramel with some light carrots. A nice subtle vienna lager. This could be a good session beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear amber with a soapy beige head. The aroma is another James Page diacetyl-fest ~ at least they’re consistent. There is also some toasted malt and honey like sweetness. Medium / thin body with soft frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with toasted malt and lots of popcorn butter and medicinal malts. The finish is spicy and astringent. I bought three James Page labeled beers - this is the last of the three and also the last James Page beer I will ever have. This is obviously at thumbs way down beer.
