Someplace in SD: Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt. Taste is a bit sweet with caramel malts. Very minimal hops. Not a bad body. This would be easily sessionable, but equally easily forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Oct. 5, 2012 (purchased at BevMo in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $1.29 (with card) on Oct. 5, 2012). Less than a finger of head. Light honey caramel with iced tea head. Bad retention all-around.
Smelled caramel, toffee, nutty and a very slight whiff of chocolate. Malty.
Tasted a bit different than I was expecting. Got caramel and toffee up front with a decent amount of malts. Reminded me a bit of an Oktoberfest. Lots of carbonation on the tongue late, giving way to a slightly nutty finish.
Light body. Thinner texture. Above average carbonation. Abrupt finish.
I was hoping for a bit more, but an OK amber overall.

A clear amber colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma of sweet caramel, with some fruits. The taste of caramel, fruits and a little hop bitter. The aftertaste is mostly sweet, almost no bitter,

Draught at the LAX bar. Amber-orange with a low, fine head. Caramel malt nose. Rich and chewy but a bit 1-dimensional. Malt flavor not quite so chewy, but ok caramel, light nuts, cherry. OK.

Buttery. Sweet. Gross. This beer embodies everything wrong with shitty American brewed lagers.
