2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Offered to me at a house party and couldn’t refuse. Medium bitterness, a bit rough on the palate, but, drinkable overall. Third Shift lurks in the grey area between macro and craft beers. More complex than I expected.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty much your generic, run-of-the-mill beer. Wasn’t a bad beer (one I would turn down) just not real outstanding traits.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is pretty decent. A nice appearance, the beer is pretty simple but it goes down smooth.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bland and watery. Thin overall with a light maltiness, sweet caramel and nuttiness, then a thin finish.

A decent job from Coors Brew Co. Good flavor, nice alcohol content. Worth a try.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Best before July 1, 2013.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with a nice amber color and a tall foamy but thin textured head. The head has decent retention and settles into a thick and creamy light tan coating.
Aroma: The aroma is very light, very inoffensive. Some fruity esters, a touch of floral hops, and very light sweet malts.
Taste: Right away sweet malts with hints of caramel mesh with fruity esters, with a touch of hops overlying the malt base. This is very inoffensive, on par with Yuengling.
Palate: Medium bodied, slightly sticky, with soft carbonation.
Overall: This is further proof that MillerCoors would rather spend money on marketing an overpriced boring beer towards the craft market instead of actually brewing a quality beer. This isn’t bad, but in areas where Yuengling is available this just comes off as an overpriced alternative.

i thought this had a decent woody hop profile that lasted and some malt in there too. there was some body to this amber brew and it did’nt seem like a macro.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber, with a tall, off white head. Scent is lightly honey, light fruit, malt. Taste is slightly bready, a hint of herbal hops, a touch of metal. Increasing, synthetic-feeling bitte

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent golden amber colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow caramel aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of caramel crisp hops and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16 oz. can from a Racetrac gas station. Pours a clear copper color with a foamy white head. Can says gold medal winner, but doesn’t specify by what, where, or who. Sweet cereal malt aroma and flavor. Not much else going on here.
