Sampler at the brewpub. Full butter diacetyl in the aroma. Less so in the flavor. Seems to be a nice America-Irish Red hybrid hiding under there.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Midwest Brewfest.
Pours a deep amber with an aroma of leafy sour malt. Flavor is sweet ocean water. Average mouthfeel. Forgettable. I think General Bennet C. Riley would rather not be associated with this beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a fairly clear copper with no head. The aroma is a muted, burnt caramel with no noticeable hop note. Light-bodied and slick with a lightly dry finish, the flavor follows the nose. It’s a simple, but decent session brew. Reading the other reviews for this beer, it seems to be a true chameleon. Just about every rating seems to be describing a completely different beer.
