Reddish pour, cap actually lasts a little longer than a few seconds. Malts, grains in the aroma, caramel. Taste is caramel with lighter bready and slightly vegetal notes, watery thin body. One of the best of the bland-o’s

Pour dark red amber with a decent with head. Aroma of malts and grains. Taste has sweet carmel, malts and toasted bread. Not bad.

[Bottle (341ml)] Sigh, I can’t believe I never rated this. Oh well, let’s do this. Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is mild at first, with caramel malt, bread, grain, "bottle", sugary fruit and vegetal notes -- like I said, starts mild but gets worse as it opens up, it was a 5 and then became a 3. Watery flavour of caramel and fruit at first followed by bread and grain -- it’s quite dull. Average bodied. Rate it, then dump it.

341ml bottle. Pours a thick creamy head, has good lacing and a dark amber colour. Mostly corn and malts from the aroma. Very light hops flavour with corn and a pretty average malty taste, a bit wheaty/cereal like. Not too bad, a go to beer, not amazing but will do the trick.

A very generic beer. Very enjoyable both on tap and bottle. Very cheap. Good taste but very meh look and aroma

DrNosha (1385) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2016
341ml Flasche. Rot-braunes Bier mit viel Schaum. Es riecht malzig Süss. Im Geschmack etwas Röstmalz. Herb-süss, kaum Abgang.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Clear, minimal haziness, copper color with dense but light activity. Lightly creamy white 2 finger head lasting around 3 minutes with average legs. Faint aromas and flavors of caramel, citrus, fruits, herbal spices. More of a sweet taste with some nuances of bread, toasty and roasted like feel. Light body with average carbonation. Faint and short finish ending with a slightly fruity aftertaste with minimal spices. Overall : Average craft; while drinking from a can this beer has passable freshness, too thin, missing some flavors and a proper finish. Not well bottled but better from tap.

dfearnley (1575) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2016
Forced to pick something...this was the thing. Consummation: Sweet, malty, skunk lite! Adjunct: Way 2 sweet, way too skunky.

trapped (2025) - New York, TURKEY - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle. Copper red with large spongy beige head, faint malt aroma, slightly sweet caramel taste, medium carbonation, abrupt finish. Not a very inspiring beer.
