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!

I wish that I had spent my hard earned money on something else. I bought a variety pack and this was the best beer in the sample pack. I found this beer drinkable and others hard to stomach.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange with an average size off-white head. Aroma of malt, yeast and hops. Taste was kind of disappointing-- malty and a little yeasty and not much else. Thin bodied.

I first tried this beer in 2001 while vacationing in Colorado. Then again a few years ago in Vegas, but havenít had it lately as I havenít seen it in Florida. It had a medium brown/amber color. Semi-sweet flavor....caramel, nutty, with some other mild spices. Would like to see it locally so I can buy a single or so, in order to get an updated opinion and review in................................................ ON 8/2/13: Just started distributing in FL. Had to revisit this as it was one of the first craft beers that I tried. Not as good as I remembered, but everything new seemed better back then. Still a decent amber, but had to downgrade a few points.

Pours a clear not quite amber color. Nice eggshell colored head. Some lacing, not a lot.
Aroma is of bread and some hops. It smells pretty good. Iím not getting a lot more.
Taste likewise is bready and some hop bitterness. It is pretty tasty. Not real heavy. Meh.
Mouthfeel is pretty good. Itís highly drinkable. Itís clean.
Overall, nothing special. Itís certainly not what I expected it to be. Iím a little disappointed, I donít think Iíll be trying this again. Itís an average beer,
