COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

12 oz bottle. Dark hazy amber with a full off-white head. Sweet caramel and malt in the nose. Nicely balanced flavor with a hint of hop bitterness at the finish. A little thin but overall pretty good.

purchased a 6er of this from E-Z Way in Muskegon on my trip home, rather plain i thought, creamy malt flavor, crisp hops but that was about it... no real other defining flavors jumping out of this one

Way better than George Killians. It has a more beer taste in comparison to lighter beers (but this is still a light beer.) The first taste had a high hop flavor with a sweet caramel/malt finish.

And I made fun of hippies! What a great beer! There are only a few bars that carry it locally but it is worth going to therm. Girls with dumb clothes, guys with trust funds and denim overalls, and spactular beer on draught. Sometimes people I look down on are right!

AKA Big Porch Ale, damn I thought that tasted familiar. This one is well balanced, and quite complex for the style. Well carbonated, and with a nice hoppy finish. Very good overall.

High quality amber from Bell’s. Great ruby appearance. High quality flavor. Very standard brew from Bells.

The color is a deep rust red that darkens toward the top. Nose is sweet with fruit accents of apple and pear that gives way to a nice caramel finish. The medium-bodied ale has a sweet flavor that manages to be remarkably smooth and rich. A very good amber that brings depth to an often one-note style.

Nice bra. Decent amount of hops. There are better ones in their variety pack.

3.5
BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Real nice amber. Not much aroma. Palate is sweet, hoppy and carbonated. Dry and slight citrus profile in the finish. Great stuff. Could get used to this, especially come summer.

Served from tap into a standard pint. Pours copper with a minimal white head. There was no apparent lacing present. The aroma was comprised of only subtle hops. The flavor was of small hops and subtle sweet malt. It was light on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this brew was really smooth and was stupidly drinkable. It did not have the greatest flavor and could have been more complex, but it was still enjoyed and was really refreshing.
