12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Weak head retention. Aroma of caramel, nuts, mild hops. The taste is grainy malts with a bit of caramel and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. A start of a good beer here, but not quite.

6pack picked up in Las Vegas. Not happy that it doesn’t say anything on the label that it is brewed by Coors
Appearance: Clear golden with a small white head and some lacing
Aroma and flavors of mats, honey and grainy
Mild and not very good, drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A light amber color with a thin, whispy head. Lacing is minimal, if any. Alot of carbonation in this one as evidenced by the tiny bubbles. Tasted very bready, and the roasted malt is evident. There was a bit of a sour bitterness on the finish.
It’s a step above the Banquet Beer.

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.

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.
