Light semi-sweet malty flavor, nice amber color with a balanced hoppy flavor. A good basic amber ale that’s acessible.

Tap. Amber color, white head. Not much to the aroma. Smoky malt flavor, not very hoppy yet still bitter, which didn’t really do it for me. I’ve had much better amber ales.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sturdy creamy head on a clear light amber body. Weak sweet malty aroma with toffee notes. Malty and slightly hoppy flavor with a thin finish. Ordinary beer, but it is a massproduction after all.....

12 oz bottle, snifter. Bread and cookie malt (L); flowery hops (L); dough and sweat yeast (M); peach aroma. Small, frothy, fizzy, white head is quickly diminishing. Body is a dark amber color. Lightly sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish with a husky aftertaste. Medium-light body, watery/creamy texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: the yeast profile is too strong for me and there is a grainy finish.

Dependable beer, good taste. By dependable I mean it’s on tap almost everywhere so it should at least save you from the dreaded "big three". I might ven stock a few bottles now and then.

Awesome awesome beer. Good on tap good int he bottle. Besides its nice 5.3 is better than the light beers all the frat boys around here drink.

Interesting if you know the story behind this beer...an "American representation" of a Belgian beer...very thin head, very thin bodied...never found the "crisp hoppiness"...very malty with little hops to be found in my bottle...can be found at most bars around Dallas though...better than a lot of alternatives...

Clear amber color. Light toasty malt nose. Toasty malt flavors light hops in finish. Not much to say about this one.

A cult Classic in CO. A different take on the amber ale. Thin head, fruity hops, and a bit of spice on the finish.
