2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a brilliant amber-copper hue, producing a 1/4 inch cream-colored head that dissipated quickly. Some malt in the nose - not much hops. Grassy notes? Medium body. Light to moderate carbonation. Sweet malty palate. Short. Fresh. Crisp. Easy to drink. Not a cerebral beer. Lacing does form. It is an OK beer, but not good value considering the quality that exists at this price point.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce single bottle from a $5.99 six-pack bought at the local Harris Teeter. Best if drank by OCT2714. Poured a nice rich amber color with a light white head. Aromas of roasted malt and a light caramel. Taste is muted malts with a clean finish. This was a good beer at a cheap price, hard to find these days. Try it!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Faint nose of malt. A bit of corn chips. Light body with watery mouthfeel. Slightly pissy. Basic malts, faint orange. Aspartame like sweetness on finish. Eh. More complex than water, and not a drain pour.
