2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can - Aroma is tons of crystal malt with a touch of hops. Pours clear amber with small head and decent lacing. Flavor is sweet and malty, too sweet and I donít usually mind sweetness. Palate is clean. Non-offensive version of Killianís Red (which is offensive). Not something I would drink again tough.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A red ale with a common, but odd taste. Something akin to gelatin. Very balanced as the can suggests, but unique and low-key.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
What a wretched foul beast. The epitome of a trainwreck beer. Pours amber with a large fluffy beige head. The aroma has light diacetyl, lighly toasted malt and butterscotch. Medium body with a lot of semi-soft carbonation. Starts with a light fruitiness, then the oxidation kicks in HARD - cardboard in a big way. Light spice on the finish, also astringent and metallic. This was terrible - a drainpour. Iím not a fan of ambers, but this disaster makes Fat Tire to be a world class brew.... and Fat Tire is boring as all get out. Avoid this thing at all costs.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Creamy pour with a dense head, but cloudy. Caramel and toasted malt aroma with some metallic notes. Very watery. Caramel and toasted malt flavor with some astringency and cardboard notes. Not too great and definately past itís prime.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours waaaaaay better than BMC, so I give it props. Aroma is very peachy, but the metallic background hinders it. Decent lacing, amber glow. Flavor is American Ale light; slight peach with malty undertones. Hops make a brief appearance but donít do much. Average mouthfeel. Not terrible; nice addition to a party where the partiers only drink BMC... wonít theyu be surprised.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy orange-brown color. Some malty chocolate and caramel in the aroma. The flavor is mostly watery, bitter, slight floral and fruity taste but not much going on overall- almost none of the caramel from the aroma.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy oranged-out amber with a vanishing white head. The nose is lightly caramel, a touch of fruit, some floral hops. Very weak though. The palate is really about the worst Iíve encountered in a beer. Watery doesnít begin to describe this nearly flat feeling, but somehow slightly fizzy beer. Thereís just no volume! The flavors are as weak as the palate. Watery caramel malts with just the slightest watery hints of floral hops. This is the ultimate chugging beer on the other hand, given the low carbonation and flavor. In a word, vapid.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very weak nose that had a hint of light caramel that was a little "off". Extremely watery caramel maltiness, but generally inoffensive and harmless. Like the container a bit more than the contents.
