2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a beautiful copper with fine bubbles chasing up the pilsner glass, medium tan head that lasts medium and shows good typical American lager lacing. The nose is strong molasses and apple. The flavor is heavily balanced toward what seems to be unattenuated and unmodified malt extract, with some green apple and the barest hint of cardboard, otherwise clean. It ends caramelly. No hops to speak of. Fairly watery and slightly oily with a faint malt aftertaste. Neh, but might be good to introduce your friends to something other than macroswill.

Poured from a bottle: orange amber body w/ a cream bubblily head. Flavor was malty I think, still learning give me a break. Wasn’t a bad beer at all, thank goodness I have 5 more.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is not bad... Its taste has a good bitterness level with a sweet, faint wood taste, and it smells really good, like a fresh cake...??? anyways, not bad at all for the price but, is this true irish amber...?

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The best two features of this beer are the nice, malty aroma, and the nice reddish amber color. The flavor itself is fairly malty-carmelly-sweet, with very little hop presence. Mouthfeel is a tad watery, and the artificial carbonation gives it a bit of a bite, but it’s definitely drinkable and has more flavor than some of the real light lagers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep dark goldish brown color. Aromas of rich malts with a touch of hops. Malt flavor with a grainy aftertaste and watery finish.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours an outrageously deep copper with a deliciously thick creamy yellow head. Aroma is of warm caramel and baked bread. Initial flavor is of roasted malt, nuts, and caramel.
But...................... this is where the pleasure ends. What starts off as one of the best brews in America get’s it’s fire put out by....what else?: WATER!!!!
High Falls Brewing Company made a fantastic beer and allowed too much water to remain in the final product. The initial flavor and then the after taste fade in the backdrop of wateryness. It’s almost as though this is the "light" version of a great beer. For shame, for shame. I paid $3.49 for a 6 pack at Bluemound Liquor in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 09/05/2K6.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Deep amber pour with a foamy yellowish head. There is a very slight aromoa malt, not much but almost there. Very light bodied beer. Thin and watery over all. Not much of a nose or finish, not much in the way of hopps or malts. I don’t think I will buy this again.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is my beer of choice. I’ve been drinking it daily for the past 7 years. I love the malty nose. I could sniff this beer for hours. I believe this beer is underated by many on this website. If you like hoppy beers or stouts, look elsewhere, but I love the medium body and malty nose.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper colored body under a fizzy quickly fading off-white head. Aroma is of light toasted malt, pale malts, and corn. Almost an extract like syrupy aroma. Flavor is pretty thin and rather adjunct laden. Overly sweet on the finish with some corn. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little cloying with moderate fizzy carbonation. Not sure if this was better than the average BMC, as this had alot more flavor than a Bud, but the flavor itself was not good.
