Nice amber color. Good session beer. Thin head but nice aroma. Taste is not overwhelming. Just an average balanced beer.

Bottle at the Silver City hotel earlier today... Polished light Amber.. Dry toast and balanced caramel... Grassy hops mesh well with a dry finish.

Slightly cloudy reddish golden pour with small, beige foam. Malty nose with caramel, vanilla, and some fruity hops. The hops are more prominent in the taste and their bitterness compliments the active fizz. Medium body and sweet finish.

So disappointed... Used to be malty and balanced and so tasty... Now it is thin and weak and just not very good. A beer that I grew up with but clearly when Bud got involved everything changed.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a bold golden with nearly no head. Subdued fruity nose. Missing flavor. I used to drink a shit ton of this back in the day. Just never reviewed it. Was feeling nostalgic. Ruined a memory.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle into schooner glass. More than a Cornflakes aroma, perhaps Frosties! Hazy amber beer with thin film on top. A few bubbles. Full bodied, sweet malt taste. Slight zing in the mouth. Alcohol and bitterness noticeable in the finish. Not great and nothing like an ESB.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber beer, hardly any head. Undiscriminate aroma. Light sour taste.very light carbonation, little mouthfeel but with a reasonable aftertaste. Ok, but will not by again.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours coppery. Smells of caramel and some vague earthy notes. Taste is some watery caramel. Not particularly bitter. Not the best example of the style.
