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.

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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick well retained off white head, with some lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 10) body......nose is cereal with light malt tones....taste is light malts with cereal layers, leading to a moderate bitter finish....mouth feel light, almost watery, carbonation high. This has hints of the Vienna style but it really needs a lot more oomph in the malt backbone to meet the style parameters. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6

Bottle. Corn syrup and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Sweet corn/barley malt and mildly bitter herbal hay hops flavor. No surprises here.
