2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an amber color (who would’ve thought?) with slightly off-white head that fades very quickly. Aroma is of weak caramel malts. Flavor is thin and mimicks the aroma. A descent average amber.

12 oz Bottle: Pours a typical amber color, little to no head at all that goes away quickly. The aroma was kind of meak with some malts and maybe a little caramel/nuts. The flavor was much like the aroma in that it was weak and nothing spectacular.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of frothy large sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and caramel brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of faint malty . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering tingly palate and a mild malty aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild malt red hop notes.

Surely, not the greatest amber beer I’ve ever had. The taste was thin and not full-bodied. Leinenkugel Red is far superior. Cheers !!!!

This beer did not have a very big head, but had a nice amber color. I enjoyed the flavor of this beer very much. It had a nice smooth flavor.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle poured a sparkling dark amber beverage, lightly carbonated. It had an average size tan fizzy head that didn’t last long but left a little lacing on the glass. The aroma was quite fruity with the primary aroma of banana and lesser notes of dried plum and grape in the background. In addition I detected a hint of bread and caramel in the background. The body was medium-light with light carbonation and a smooth texture. The Flavor starts off sweet and fruity. As it matures caramel comes to the front and the finish is long and smooth with some alcohol warmth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fizzy malt based beverage. Copper/caramel color. Tasted vaguely sweet with some muted toffee flavors. Considerably bubbly. Overall it’s pretty average. Something to drink without realizing that you’re actually drinking something.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A crystal clear caramel/amber body with lively effervescence... a surgically-clean appearance topped by a methodically fading off-white head. Light caramel and mustiness in aroma with weak nuttiness and a hint of diacetyl. Mildly-malted flavor is semi-sweet, but there’s a slight bitter lift at the end. Overall watery and weak. Another Point you can forget about.
