This beer is still nothing even close to a malt monster. Itís like itís trying to be a Vienna but gets lost on the way there. It has mild and very bland malty flavors, with nothing distinctive. Itís like Macrobrew 1.5 or something. Not that good, definitely not worth the premium price they like to put on this stuff. The fact that they think the fact that there are no adjuncts used makes it premium says a lot here: their expectations arenít high, so donít let yours be.

Bottle. Pours a clear, light amber with a thin, fizzy head. Easy malt aroma with some grains. Sweet flavor with some sugar and cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes malty, basically no bitterness. Nothing too wrong here.

Hay, citrus, in the aroma. Not unpleasant. Color a wan yellow with a big head that dissapates quickly. Thin mouth feel with a light, clean, mild taste.Call it a guilty pleasure and drink it really cold.

Well at least give them an A for effort. They are trying not succeding but trying. Itís not horrible and it was for free . Coppery pour with a malty and mild citrus aroma. Some hop in their. Itís an attempt at something here.

I was reviewing old family videoís recently when I saw that I had gotten a Mic variety pack for Christmas í01í with this beer in it. I remember enjoying this one. It was similar to a Amber.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a bright, deep golden body with a medium white head.
Smell: Toasted grains and very light caramel with soft musty, floral notes.
Taste: Exceedingly mild malt flavor and sweetness. Barely a dash of Noble-esque hops. Finishes relatively sweet.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Refreshing, inexpensive, and not nearly as bothersome as the vast majority of the other macro beers, so really I canít complain.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I am only rating this because it is a big step in the right direction for BMC beers. Pours a honey gold with a spritzy head that instantly fades. Lots of honey and caramel in the nose, possibly diacetyl as well. Lively carbonation. The body is light and drinkable, with subtle notes of hay and dough. The hops are barely noticable, but do add a slight grassy note to balance things. This isnít my favorite style by any means, but this easily rises above all the other "adjunct" ridden beers in its class. Hopefully this all-malt idea catches on with the masses.

Poured a nice goldish color. Nice and malty, and was great when served ice cold. Should be made more available.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden brown color. Aromas of malts, caramel, and maybe a touch of some hops. Flavor was bland grainy with not much else. Kind of chewy.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice rich golden hue. Puffy off white head. Steady carbonation. Sweet, caramel, malty nose. This isnt quite as bad as I had expected. But it really doesnt do anything to excite me. Maybe they should try an All Urine Lager. I dislike AB!
