COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The front runner of all four flagship beers, this amber colored American Ale is a full bodied ale which has gone through more than 20 various recipe alterations before we felt satisfied enough to slap our name on it. The American Hero Ale, which embraces all things American, features great head retention and full flavor with just the right amount of Cascade and Centennial hops. The great color and smooth flavor of this beer makes a great addition to the fridge all year ‘round.

12 oz. can. Pours a reddish-gold color with an off-white head that’s about a half-inch thick settling to a film leaving nice lacing. Aroma is sticky sweet with some pine hops. Mouthfeel is thin, malt is the leader with the hops in the background. Sweet finish. Ok.

Taste is mainly sweet malts with just enough hops to hold it together. Medium bodied, average carbonation, mouth feel is a little thin. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of toffee, caramel, plum, grass. Interesting. It’s OK.

Absolutely beautiful. Reddish brown with a big white head. The aroma has caramel and grass with some sweet malt. The flavor is a bit sweet with the caramel. A little thin. Decent summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
