Dark amber pour with a light beige head. Aroma is weak caramal malt. Althought the beer is smooth and easy going down, the taste is neutral; nither bad nor good.so so lacing.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Thoughts of DS9 more than anything else, really. Bottled. Mildly skunky nose, sweet with dusty-fruity yeast, green. Pours rather transparent orange with a very short white head. Watery light body with bare-bones of bitterness and malt, thin in most aspects, even their characteristic sweetness is backed off a bit. Faintish hint of rubber. Not bad, just boring and sterilized. I’d have it again.

Clear amber, light head.light full bodied beer, earthy. A great summer/lawn mowing/baseball game beer. Not my preferred style of beer, but pretty good.

guzzler67 (1527) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Clear, deep amber appearance with a large off white head and good lacing. Sweet, caramel malt aroma with just a slight touch of herbal hops. Earthy, toffeeish flavor with the sweet, bready malts dominating through to the aftertaste. Dull and one-dimensional.

Not much aroma to speak of, pale copper/brownish color, quite clear. Taste is smooth with a touch of caramel after a brief hop bite, finishes lightly sweet and malty. Not overly complex but not bad. Quite refreshing and easy drinking, but nothing outstanding. That being said it would make an excellent yard or pool beer to keep around even if it is not going to wow anyone.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle. Clear medium copper, average white head. Surprisingly little in the way of aroma or flavour, just a bit of caramel and bland grains. To quote my buddy Rosser: "BOOOORRRRRRRIIIINNNNGGGG."

Stellaaaa (257) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a clear amber with minimal head. It has a malty, bready aroma of barley and a hint of hops. The taste is of thin, watery barley water. Tastes similar to Goya Malta or something, very light for its colour. No discernable defects really, just very bland, watery and more or less meh...

Fatehunter (1389) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Poured a half finger of head on a clear, dark copper colored body. The aroma is a good, if faint, grain and malt smell. The taste is fairly bland. A touch of sweetness. The texture is too fizzy with a crisp texture. At 4.8% and no real flavor you could go to town on these and not be offended.

VAYankee (333) - Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Clear copper body with a short white head. Caramel malt aroma. Thin palate. Lightly malty flavor, slightly bready and even more faint caramel sweetness with muted, mild but typical pale ale aftertaste.
