12oz bottle. Rating #85. Clear amber pour with a sticky white head. Light sweet malty aroma, no discernible hop character. Bland, light sweetness, almost a little corny. Not much too it. (2045)

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2012
bottle pours clear amber gold color with small sustaining white head. Aroma of light malts, some hay, buttered toast. Palate at first feels very smooth and creamy like a bitter, but then becomes slightly abrasive on the finish. Flavor of butter and toast gives way to an unidentified metallic bitterness. About what I expected, but could have been so much more. This should be in a can with a widget.

BVery (6840) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Clear amber pour with a white head. Very faint malt nose. This thing is low on taste character with just a bit of malt and hop, is dry on the palate, and leaves a metallic finish. Just not good at all.

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is dark orange, red with nice white head, aroma brought notes of big spicy lemon, big bready and slight caramel notes, some slight cereal grain, citrus, hints of a slight grassy hop note as well. Taste is a nice mix of lots of bready and yeasty driven malts, hints of caramel mixed in with some slight nutty notes, touch of grass and citrus but not as much as the nose, ever so slight ester notes as well.

cheap (4172) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2012
from a bottle. smells crisp and clean. pour is slightly darker than pale yellow. refershing on the commencement. slight bitterness begins to build. goodly amount of co2 makes this easier to enjoy. a little mettalic at times. finish is almost some hops but barely perceivable. slag ending.
