3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle thanks to Cheap. Pours a clear ruby color with a medium white head. A light malty nose, some skunkiness. Light fruity malts, some bitter skunkyness, metallic. Tastes a lot like Yuengling! Haha. Fond memories.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
9/15/11. On tap in a pint glass. Clear amber pour, a bit on the light side, almost orange, with a creamy tan head that fades and laces a little bit. Very light aroma of grain, caramel, and not much else, honestly. Similarly light flavor of caramel and dusty grain tannins with a lingering roasty, almost tannic bitterness. Could be worse.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark amber-orange, standard "American head" .. drinks as you’d expect, rich with caramel malt, and a nice fall, woodsy outdoorsiness. Not a bad interpretation. (#5302, 10/27/2013)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with soft white bubbly head. Aroma has some light toffee accents, a bit of nuttiness. Flavor has some root beer candy notes, some brown sugar, some ripening vegetable notes, a caramel like sweet finish. Mouthfeel is just on the good side of thick. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent amberish wrong with thin off-white head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells and tastes of malt and lager yeast. Average on the palate. Solid by Yuengling standards.

[Draft @ Ortino’s pizza] Brown color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, toast, toffee, and bread. Taste of caramel, nuts, toasted malts, and light roast.

Bottle. Dark ruby-amber with a short, fizzy tan head. Aroma is malty with caramel, dark bread notes and toasted grains. Taste is primarily caramel and dark bread with more sweet malt notes, toasted grains and hints of toffee. Body is medium with a lively, fizzy carbonation. Ends with more malt notes, stronger bready flavors, caramel, light toffee and some grains.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Bearden Beer Market. Coppery orange, thin but sturdy white head. Smells like caramel and white bread toast, which is also a pretty good description of the flavor. Finishes with a subtle hop bite.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nose is like a slightly-stronger version of Traditional Lager. Smells like America. Taste is fairly malty with a touch of bread.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, screw-top but thankfully brown glass. Nose of thin dark malt with earth and dark caramel and some roast, touch of candy sweetness, but dirty. Pours is a red-amber-orange gradient with a short off-white head. Thin watery body with light but effective bitterness, blink-and-you-miss it malt, touch of candyish sweetness but dries out quickly and thickly. Dirty and makes me check to see if someone dropped their cigarette butt in my glass, and aftertaste is stale.
