An old-school beer. It is like any amber or pale lager, watery, grainy, pretty nondescript.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2011
12oz bottle. Poured a lovely shade of amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and redder fruity notes with accents of pine and sweeter versions of the aforementioned malts.. I don’t know what it was about this, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found an infusion of molasses to join honey at the core.. nondescript bitterness plus salty character surrounded, and a touch of alcohol heat joined residual sugars and bitterness on the finish.. quite muddled. Lighter-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. lots of residual sugars at the end, but also some nice piney bitterness.. all in all a very drinkable brew.

BVery (6266) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Bottle. Deep gold / light amber pour with a smallish white head. Nose is caramel, malt, and some grass. Something a little sharp in the nose too - can’t place it. Medium-thin palate. Taste is also caramel malt, with a late but heavy dose of "I’m not all THAT well made, and here, I’ll leave you with this taste as proof." Actually improves a bit as it warms slightly from fridge temperature.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2010
On draught at the Sprecher Brewing Company north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear copper colored brew with a thick off-white that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some floral and dry hops a hint of tropical fruit, and some Brazilian nuts. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of caramel and biscuit malt, floral hops and a hint of spice. Finish is slightly dry with a mild bitterness that quickly disappears. Somewhat close to the Sprecher Red Ale with a more dry bittern finish.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2011
12oz bottle. Hazy red-brown. Respectable creamy beige/off-white head. Creamy cherry-vanilla aroma. I’m not a big fan of Ambers/Reds, but this is ok, not mindblowing World Class. Creamy finish, rather mild and inoffensive. Not one I’d ever seek out again, but respectable enough...get’s old fast, non-quality feel to it. Fake-me-out corporate beer.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Hazy copper with a quickly fading tan topper. Aroma of heavy caramel and bread with mild citrus hops. Taste is balanced with caramel, mild nuts, dark fruits and floral hops. Mildly over-carbonated with a bitter and slightly metallic finish.

wlajwl (3876) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Aroma is sweetish malts and a hint of spice. The flavor is malts, medium sweetness and an off twang in the finish.

burg326 (3670) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle that poured an amber color with aromas of honey, pine, and sweet malts. Flavor is the same, with a touch of molasses, and a touch of fruit. A slight bitter aftertaste at the end.

DrnkMcDermott (2799) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2011
12oz. loose bottle, $1.50 @Woodman’s. Nice start with a rich amber/red pour, a few particles, but otherwise clean with plenty of bubbles and a big bubbly head. Smell has some decent malt to it, and it’s a bit mineral-like. Taste is pretty nice, with some good caramel malts. Some bitterness that I think is English with a touch of Northern Brewer. The label reads "Brewed with the finest mineral waters," which makes me think there is a mineral taste as well as smell.

drpimento (2224) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2011
I let it warm up a bit out of the fridge first. Then poured it with a decent, foamy, thick, creamed colored head that quickly subsides and a little lace. Aroma is fairly basic, but not bad, a little malt, caramel, hop, and hint of toffee. Flavor’s about the same. Body is ok and so is carbonation plus some immediate alcohol warming. Finish is like flavor with a bit of fruitiness at the very and and is medium in length. Just another beer where somebody’s trying to make a buck.
