3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Third Shift Amber Lager has an extremely thin, white head, which quickly dies away and very little lacing left behind. The appearance is amber and clear, with some streaming bubbles. Aroma is of sweet bread crust and is faint. Taste is of sweet, roasted malt, bread crust, a little bit of caramel, and a light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is watery, and Third Shift Amber Lager finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and mild. Overall, this is a good beer, and I would think it’s worth trying at least once. RJT

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Aroma of a little straw and a little malt. Taste is sweet with a little astringency in the finish. Rather sour at the end, though sweetness lingers. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasant aroma, beautiful, amber color. The head is fairly thin and dissipates quickly, no real lace. But, the taste is very nice, after finding out it was made by Coors/Miller I was expecting a corn/rice flavor, but it’s fairly malty. Also, feels very good on the palate. All in all, pretty good beer. I’d buy it again.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a clear amber with half a finger of white head and little lacing. Light aroma of malt grains and some noble hops. Taste follows nose with grainy malt, light hops and a hint of caramel and slight breadlines. Lively carbonation and thin/medium mouthfeel. Unimpressive. Just a tick above a macro and wouldn't drink again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A step up from a macro, but not far. Pretty deep golden color, minimal head disappears quickly, no lacing. Good carbonation. No hidden ingredients apparent, this is just malt and hops. OK to have with lunch, but this is not my evening sipper.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden with head. Aroma is somewhat neutral with some fresh lake water notes, a hint of nuttiness. Flavor is enticing and enjoyable with some light caramel notes, a bit of nuttiness, some light raisin notes, a finish of toffee. Mouthfeel is thick enough for a lager. Rather impressed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good label, twistoff brown longneck, bright citrine gold, nice head which coollapses to a film. Cereal malt aroma, a little powdery. Crisp, nicely bittered, crackery. Medium, crunchy mouthfeel, a very tiny bit of metal-astringency in the aftertaste. Pretty good - definitely a notch over what we usually get from MillerCoors. Third Shift is screaming for pizza or nachos. ABC, Betton.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear, light amber with high effervescence and a thin, beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, corn, rice cereal, hay and light planty hops. Flavor is more sweet malt, corn and hay, planty notes, spicy alcohol notes, bready yeast and a mineraly bitterness. Light and dry, but slightly oily feel throughout with a moderate carbonation. Meh, not much of a Vienna.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a decent amber with a thin white head that fades. Taste is of malt, grain, caramel, fruit and some hops. Similar aroma. Decent body with a slight dry finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable. Wouldn’t mind picking it up again.
