mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

ads135 (3702) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 13, 2013
Meh. An unremarkable amber ale. Light bodied with a weak palate. A bit of sweetness but mostly cardboardy. Tried this at Brandonís house during March Madness, 2013.

Lemke10 (914) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2013
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!

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2013
Clear orange amber with white lacing. Yeasty, basement aromas. Medium bodied, with flavors of wet yeast and a little caramel. Not un-wnjoyable.

docsteigs (542) - Texas, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours thin and light for style. Taste actually true style but a little thin. Nothing bad but kind of boring.

12 oz bottle; got this from my brother-in-law. Pours a clear deep old gold (not amber) with a sustaining off-white head; laces really nicely, actually--not too common with beers from the Big 3; leaves a constant blanket of foam down to the last drop. Aroma is grainy, caramelly, whiff of vomit, wet dog, metal, minerally. Taste is thankfully an improvement over aroma. Itís lightly sweet with extremely faint bitterness in the finish. Bland, yet inoffensive flavor. Mouthfeel is creamy, body thin. When I tried this straight from the bottle, I thought it was horrible--cloying caramel malt is what I remember. Itís better out of a glass, but that aroma is definitely a detraction. Easy to chug this out of a Spaten stange. Simple, bland beer that is better if you donít stick your nose into the glass. As a sidenote, Iíd like to repeat what others have mentioned. What gold medal did this win? Itís weird that they donít mention that on the label. And who is this íBand of Brewersí with such a passion for brewing that they canít make a more interesting product than this? I know I wouldnít even be close to being proud of this beer if I were to homebrew something like this, so why are these so-called expert brewers so proud of it? I think itís obviously just marketing and this íBand of Brewersí likely doesnít even exist, but, you know, just saying...

Look at that commercial, with the cartoon brewers in perfect harmony - - a cool assembly of super-hip cognoscenti, concocting the ultimate super brew. WOW those cartoon people are cool, and brilliant - - so perfect, that their beer-creating moves are sublime choreography. This must be the best beer ever. I actually havenít had it. I would never buy desolate glam swill like this - - another thin suggestion of actual flavor, in an over-hyped frame. But I feel it is fair to rate it, since I already know what it tastes like - - it tastes like glamorized H2O with a smattering of more actual ingredients than their usual tasteless H20. So, I think this is a valid rating, though actually the total score may be actually too high - - but I simply canít help myself for overrating it, since it is is obviously so frickiní special.
