Not a bad beer to drink in quantity. Too little taste for my liking. Starts weak and ends weak. Michelob Amber Bock is a much better beer if you are looking for something like this.

Pours a muddy amber with a nice tan head. Flavor is malty and i get lots of raisons. There is some lingering hops in the swallow. A very nice beer expierince in my opinion. Available almost everywhere and worth trying.

On tap. Amber color, tan head. Toasty malt aroma. Flavor was malty as well, lightly sweet, tiny bit of hops. Average body, but pretty drinkable. Not bad.

Its a shame this beer isnt available east of the Mississippi River. A delightful ale with a nice, smooth taste.

Bottled. While not exceptional, this is a nice, easy-drinking beer. Sweet malt start followed by a well balanced, hoppy finish. A very special kind lawn mowing beer. I’m a mountain biker so it gets a bonus point.

Bottle in Colorado. Seems to be everywhere out there. Good deep amber color and average white head. Nice roasted caramel aroma. Good malty, spicy amber beer flavor. Thin body. I enjoyed a bunch of these, but I see its not the best New Belgium.

Heard so much good stuff about New Belgium. Bought several of their beers and find them to be just average. This had a nice copper body with foamy white head and nice lacing. Malty sweetness to the nose was okay. A bit watery in texture. Might be good cold on a hot day or with some food but the flavor does not merit solo sipping. A mediocre beer.

I had heard so many great things about this beer, so I gave it a shot. Not overly impressed by any means, but didn’t dislike it. It’s kinda complex, with lots of flavors going on, but mainly a roasted hop thing, that’s not great, but not bad.
