Paid $8 for a 24 oz of this at a Braves game. Looking back, it definitely wasn't worth it, but it was better than paying $7 for a BMC product. Nice copper color and good malt presence. Decent hop flavor from a macro. It's a step in the right direction for the mass-produced American beer market, but no where near the top.

Amber to copper in color, this beer pours a minimal pale head that dissipates fast. Hoppy aroma, creamy mouth feel, with a little bitterness to finish. Not a bad mass produced lager.

Amber color, thin white head leaving some lacing. Malty, nutmeg and honey aroma with notable hops. Good flavor, more robust than most lagers. Light to medium body and nicely carbonated.

I have had this beer dozens of times and last night I indulged in 4 draft pints. I really think that the hops are fuller and fresher on draft. This draft beer was tremendously more floral with citrus, dryer and crisper than the bottled version. Good stuff!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorites. This beer has a deep amber color. The flavor and roma of the hops is just right. Nice aftertaste.

Dark blond beer with a big off white somewhat creamy head. Light floralhoppy aroma. There is a distinct hoppy taste without too much bitterness.

Tasted in Toronto from the LCBO. Dark golden / orange colour. White head, well sustained. Spicy hoppy aroma, smells more like an IPA than a lager. Flavour is bitter, with a very dry finish and hint of spice. Again, stands up like an ale.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
It's not bad, but it is somewhat inconsistant. I've had decent bottles, but others had a certain undertaste I can't identify.
