simple beer. Looks great when poured. This is a super easy beer to drink. lightly malted and creamy

Pours a yellow color with a hint of copper mixed in. Aroma was minimal of some sweetness and bread. Taste was not complex, almost too simple. A refreshing beer, that is easy drinking but not something I’d clamor for.

This is one of my least favorite beers of all time. The taste is sickeningly sweet and artificial tasting. I can’t comment much, maybe I had a bad batch but I am not a fan so far. The only thing I can comment on is the appearance which is pleasant. A nice honey amber color with bits of red and a medium head.

12 oz. bottle. Loose single from my local Jewel. Light amber color, no haze, thin layer of foam on top. Slightly bready amber malt smell. As with some malt-forward beers, taste has a bit pf phenol, or medicinal alcoholic note. Sweet and sticky, though. There are some possibilities for this, but too many detractions. Possibly some adjunct, too.

I drank this from a bottle into a chalice. This beer pours a dark clear gold with a white head, slighty carbonated. Smells light citrus with strong hops. This beer has a complex palate as it starts light, rough in the middle and a very soft finish of flavor, but overall a very common boring flavor.

The color of this was perfect for the type of brew, just perfection in the amber resemblance. Taste was solid as well. Went down smooth and refreshing. But man, the color was exceptional.

I thought this beer was a pretty decent beer- aroma hada caramel and coffee mix and poured an amber red and very frothy....very nice taste

madvike (2843) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle - Pale amber with a smallish white bubbly head. Sweet honey and malt on the nose. Seriously...just tons of honey. Taste is limp sweet malt with honey and a finish that alternates between corn and a faint hop note. Really watery in both body and taste, but the cloying sweetness stops this from being sessionable. Not a beer I’d try again.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2010
Bottle: Copper with a small white head, light nose of sweet, roasted malts and bread, flavor is of roasted malts, caramel, and a bit of a hop finish.

Weak mushroom and cherry nose. Clear golden, headless. Watery mouthfeel. Flavor of malt and cherries. Some pekoe notes are present. Below average but I’ve had much worse.
