1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Initial impression from the pour does not impress, as there is not much aroma and little head retention. The first sip reminds me a bit of Sam Adams Boston Lager, but that quickly fades as the long malty finish disappoints. There is a touch of sweetness to this medium bodied clear amber lager, but it leaves me wanting for more. While it may be a better alternative to the mass market lagers, I’ll not pursue it again.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a small white head. Grain and sweet malts dominate the aroma. Flavor is much the same, with a slight metallic flavor in the mix. This really wasn’t all that bad... I’ve had worse.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours gold into the glass with a tiny white head. Aroma is metallic with a slight malty note. Flavor is minimal with an almost astringent bitterness at the end. Thin body. No thanks.

Thanks to blutt59 for sending this in a trade. Appearance: Copper body, and a huge amount of agitation barely produces a head. Aroma: grass and ammonia, copper, caramel and plastic. Flavour: Damp cardboard, grass, vegetables, grain, burnt plastic. Awful. Thanks Bob lol!

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle (12oz). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Clear amber, no head. Grain and tupentine aroma, sweet and harsh. Tastes like fake maple syrup aged in an old LawnBoy bag - ugh. Light, slick, still mouthfeel, sweet, with an ugly aftertaste. Tick - and NEVER again.

Everything about this beer is bringing up just one word to me, no matter what I try to think of differently to describe it: coppery. It looks coppery, it smells coppery, and God help me, it tastes coppery. I just hope coppery is a word.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of grass and bark and an odd vegetal quality to the flavor. Sweet bready malt and grass. The worse of a mediocre brand.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
copper golden color. Medium to large sized thick soapy head. Nose is rising raw bread with a little bit of vinegar. Taste is honeyed grains, cereal, metal, and yeast. Semi carbonated mouthfeel and a not so great aftertaste. Blah but not horrible offensive.
