Frank (3017) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2014
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. Its 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 youd be much better off buying something like Bush Signature Amber Lager.

rdixon77 (824) - Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2014
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?

TXTripletMom (5) - - APR 11, 2014 does not count
I love this beer, its one of my favorites, an AMBER well balanced with just enough attitude to stand on its own two feet and say "hey, im 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 its well balanced). At certain times, however, when im not very accustomed to drinking beer it seems a bit sweet. Generally speaking its a nicely balanced amber and would beat our typical Texan bocks, or blondes hands down. The brewers passion for beer is apparent in the fabulous and well balanced flavors.

Renobob (830) - Besanon, FRANCE - APR 10, 2014
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.

arkurzynski (1583) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2014
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.

Cavie (3842) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (2264) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 31, 2014
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.

ExpendableHero (766) - Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2014
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.

cafgen (144) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
