2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours pale straw with a white head.
Smells like Coors (which it is, incidentally): a bit of corny malt smell with notes of dive bar.
Tastes sweet with a bitter hoppy trail off at the end.
Probably pretty good on I sweltering day.

Not amber. Unremarkable. Ridiculous website ( one has to redirect to *gack* Facebook to find out more. I refuse). "Third Shift" is about right. I would have loved to sit in on the brainstorming sessions for this one. "Lets see...we will appeal to the beer snobs AND the lunchpail crowd at the same time."

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Copper-orange, not much head. Virtually no carbonation. Tastes flat, malty and sweet. No complexity and nothing memorable about this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lager glass. Sweet hints of wheat, maybe some hay. Taste of wheat, slightly sweet, not much else there. Decent head but a watered down gold color. Easy to drink had a watered down aftertaste.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light golden with a pillowed boozy head. Aromas of light grain, light caramel, and light grass. Flavors of light caramel, light grain, and light grass. Light bitter, slightly grainy, dry aftertaste. Taste more on the side of a pale lager but does have a light noticeable malty caramel coming through first before the other flavors.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at brewery. Nothing really impressive about this, very macro tasting. Probably only technically an amber.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clean amber color with a slight malt aroma. Taste is simple, nothing distinct. A crisp amber lager that is refreshing. Lacks any complex flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a transparent amber with visible carbonation and a thick, white head that stays. Decent lacing. Subtle, malty aroma with no trace of floral hop notes. Malty but otherwise mostly bland flavor. Neither objectionable nor noteworthy. Meh.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Meh. An unremarkable amber ale. Light bodied with a weak palate. A bit of sweetness but mostly cardboardy. Tried this at Brandon’s house during March Madness, 2013.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours a dark amber color with an average off-white head. It has a very mild aroma of mostly grains. Surprisingly decent tasting for a beer that going in I knew was brewed by Miller/Coors. This is a pretty average to high average macro-brew attempting to appeal as craft. Some caramel sweetness is mixed nicely with the grains. Tons more flavor than Miller Lite or Coors light!
