The macros have been stepping up their game a bit lately and there have been a few hits and a few misses. This is the latter. In the glass, it is a slightly red orange color. It’s head is small and of mixed sized bubbles. This brew is dominated by sweet, cotton-candy like malt character and is furthermore overcarbonated to the point of distraction. I enjoy a malty amber colored brew from time to time but in this case it seems forced and exaggerated. It is drinkable so not a total loss but you’d be much better off buying something like Bush Signature Amber Lager.

Weak amber. Amber reddish pour. Slight malt/cereal aroma. Some sweet caramel. Grainy taste. Not much else to make it stand out. Easy enough to drink, but why?

I love this beer, it’s one of my favorites, an AMBER well balanced with just enough attitude to stand on it’s own two feet and say "hey, i’m special". It has a nice complexity and a balance of roasted malty goodness without being too bitter (though it has a nice complexity from the hops it’s well balanced). At certain times, however, when i’m not very accustomed to drinking beer it seems a bit sweet. Generally speaking it’s a nicely balanced amber and would beat our typical Texan bocks, or blondes hands down. The brewer’s passion for beer is apparent in the fabulous and well balanced flavors.

Bue à la pression. Belle couleur ambrée foncée. Tout dans la douceur et la rondeur. Arômes caramel et sucre candi présents juste comme il faut.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Deep reddish amber pour. Sweet cereal grains and toasted malt. Flavor is quite biscuity/toasty with sweet caramel and vegetal hops. Lingering toast. Odd brew.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber orange color. Foamy head. Aroma is very grainy. Smells like mash. Flavor is also grainy and tastes like a grain mash. This is the same beer as Batch 19.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a three finger white foamy head fills up and recedes gently leaving a decent amount of nice spider web lacing, small streams of light carbonation are seen rising.
The smell had some malts forward in a bland soapy way, no hops.
The taste was sweet through the malts (like a Vienna lager), nothing else noted.
On the palate, it sat about a light, slightly crisp, sessionable, soapy aftertaste, bland watery finish.
Overall, uh . . . bmc does a Vienna lager, good for them, its not bad, but its not spectacular, ok thanx, time to move on.

Light copper colored beer with a white head. Faint aromas of caramel. Tastes of caramel, some butterscotch, corn mash, and dirty water. Sweet finish. Easy to drink. Would be good as a session brew, but not much else.

Nice light amber color. Good taste for a lager that comes from Miller-Coors brewery. Smell is light sweet. Flavor is nice with a bitterness finished.
