My first review so I used the íole standards. Honestly enjoyed the beer. It goes down easy, itís fairly common/easy to find, damn good with a cigarette. Outside of that itís got a good woodsy feel and taste about, unfortunately I probably wouldnít take it camping with me. Not manly enough in taste. Actually the taste comes across as a bit contrived, less outdoorsman more mythical Narnia - with all the childish trappings. Love the bottle and pretty ornamental decorations. Ornamental decorations are what you need on a beer like this, itís a statement. The beer is saying yeah Iím ornamental and maybe not as woodsy as I should be but thatís the taste. Itís unabashed and therefore just like a Blue Moon itís a perfect guilty pleasure. Finally... I think Iíll have another. Hope this helped, and happy drinking! I look forward to writing more reviews and hopefully becoming more knowledgeable in the timeless are of beer guzzling. Cheers!

Lord, that "toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors" is dead-on. Hoppiness, though...not so much. Pretty average, like a baseline by which you can judge all other craft beer.

Like many, this beer was my gateway beer for craft beers. Biscuity flavor, dryer finish. Great beer to always have on hand.

Draft. Somehow not rated in past. This is the beer you but in commercial restaurants when they have crappy choices. Typical amber appearance. Standard amber flavor plus some soap. It works when you need a beer

Aromas of caramel and bread. Pours a clear orange with a very small white head. Flavors of banana, malt and yeast. Balanced but not to distinct. Fizzy. Nicely designed bottle. Doesnít do too much for me.

I canít believe I havenít rated this yet. Faint coca aroma surgery malts and a fizzy finish. A pretty flat beer and probably good for people who are trying to get into Belgian beers.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent sized off-white head of fine bubbles with minimal carbonation. Aroma of cardboard, mild sour malts, boiled vegetables and adjunct. Color is a nice orange brown with very good clarity. Flavor is flat and synthetic. More cardboard, band aids, creamed corn, and cereal grains. Light alcohol presence. Bit of lingering sickly sweetness. Perscription for a headache the next morning. Just as bad as i remember. Highly NOT recommended!

Can. Not sure how Iíve never rated this but letís do it. Mild, light, inoffensive beer. Better than your average beer but really nothing special in the grand scheme. Nothing really remarkable in terms of flavor.
