Not so bad. Crisp and light yet malty. 2nd oldest family owned brewery in the US to yuengling.

This is a pretty decent version of an under-appreciated style. Mild and watery, but with a nice breadiness. Tried at the brewery with Vaughn and Amanda.

Pretty basic amber ale here. Slight malty sweetness. Not too bad but nothing interesting. Thanks GV for this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light amber with minimal head. Aroma of corn and grains with minimal malt. Taste is light sweet. Caramel, cotton candy and corn. Light bodied with a slightly slick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable but nothing to seek out.

Tap at Memory Lanes. Good amber color. Doesn’t give the impression of freshness otherwise. Little head, no lacing. And not tied into the pouring abilities of the bartender. Slight malt sweet aroma but very slight. Tastes like a run of the mill Midwestern lager. No complexity. If you’ve tried the Grain Belt Nordeast, this bears a striking family resemblance. More brick than fire.

Its a lovely amber with a solid sheet of toasted cream on top. Smells sweet with some nougat, some pale malt, some biscuit and a bit of tea. Flavor is malts, sweet, some banana, some more tea (sweet tea in the south), some bits of orange peel. Medium on full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation and a wet finish. Decent beer, nothing I’d be likely to slam repeatedly.

12 oz bottle from unknown origin in Pittsburgh. Generally bland and unremarkable. I won’t be going back anytime soon.

Used to be able to get this on Northwest Airline Flights in a can. It was awesome at 35,000 feet in First Class. I loved it. Bottled from the liquor store was not the same, but still a very enjoyable beer. Very Smooth and Creamy. Very little after bite. I pause and look at it whenever I’m at my beer store, but alas, I move on. Still not a bad beer. My favorite from August Schell.

Tap in Republic, Minneapolis. Good mid-amber colour with a thin head. Pleasant malty aroma, firm taste initially, hint of biscuit, something else a bit weird is it metal? Thin finish. Pleasant enough but a bit disappointing.
