Nice orange pour with a medium head. Only aroma is corn. A little sour, no real balance. Malt and caramel. Extremely unexciting.

Horrible. Wow, bad on draft. Everything is bad, but mainly just really bad taste. Don’t know what else to say.

Rated on 02-24-2013 at Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar (Jacksonville, FL) This bottled beer forms a small smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden transparent body, very little carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is grainy, metallic, corn and some malt. The flavor mimics the aroma along with a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer’s flavor is not that great tasting and this is a beer not on my drink again list.

Hardly worth comment, but at least it resembles beer, which is more than can be said for some of these... Medium amber, corny, boozy aroma, not much at all on taste, just old grains. It's a dud! Score: F ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Clear copper body. Taste and aroma is moderately sweet, bready. Light-medium body. Not a big fan, not much going for it.

My husband bought a sixer of this by accident. Actually looks nice- amber with pillowy cream head and decent lacing. Smells like honey nut cheerios with a metallic/lemon overlay. Flavor is sourdough with some mild hop character. A little heavy on the carbonation, mild hop finish. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

"Draft-mellow nutty malt. A little sweet, low level buttering hops. Not a favorite style for me either, but this was ok. Nut/toast/hint of sweet, slightly bitter finish. Thin body..."

Transfer from BA review on 2-26-13- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance- The beer pours a nice amber-orange color with a big white billowy head. The head has great retention, slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is of cereal and grain with some aromas of caramel sweetness. Mixed with these aromas are some notes of a citrus and herbal hop providing a nice balance for the maltier smells. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter caramel and bready flavor up front. Some notes of a citrus hop then come to the tongue as well as a slightly corny and metallic flavor. The off metallic flavor is well hidden by more citrus hop, bready, and caramel flavors as well as by a light earthy hop taste that comes to the tongue more toward the end. While hidden, the metallic flavor is still detected and in the end one is left with a somewhat lightly hopped malt liquor like taste to be left on the tongue. Mouthfeel -The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner to average side in terms of its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is average to possibly just above average. Both the carbonation and body suit the blend of caramel, bready, and light hop tastes well with both also making for a quite drinkable brew. Overall – While a step above many, alas it is just a slightly hopped version of more standard American adjunct lagers.
