On tap, Ive had it many times over, yet it seems to vary each time. Usually a medium copper pale color, white head, good carbonation. Aromas are decently malty, more of a pale caramel malt. Palate is pretty basic but a clean malt forwardness. Always good and on tap everywhere in the area.

Similar to a euro lager but not in a good way. Bland taste, off-putting smell. Would not recommend

22oz bottle 11/101/6 (Kappys-Medford)-38 in Shaker-Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same with a bit of dryness and not much hops. This light bodied brew is not very hoppy or tasty.

IndianaRed (4236) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle dull hazy light amber. Brief of white head quickly fading to a thin skin. Moderate toasted malt flavors. Some bitterness but not really hoppy. Late metallic bite. Not very good.

Can. Hazy bright yellow with a big fluffy head. Aroma is Pilsner malt and corn. Light and crisp feel. Taste like flavored seltzer. Very bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got a 6-pack of this in October on a white water rafting trip with Erica, Alice, Ian. Finishing up the last one today (tells you what I thought of it?). Smells metalic which might be either in my mind due to the name or b/c it came from a can. Kind of chewy and bready; malt-forward yet somehow still bitter. Dont like that combo. Not a fan of the style or this take on it.

If this is your flagship beer........you have some work to do. Very disappointed . Was recommended by some locals while in Massachusetts. Enough said.

Ungstrup (36411) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2015
Draft. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, grain, AMD straw, leading to a bitter finish.

Good Light Refreshing Bit fruity Sweet And the aroma is mild but very good does not fill you up just like a pale ale should do ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz from wegmans. The appearance is very white. Lots of carbonation. This smells not great . Someone here said "smells like the train at 3am." Budwiser and urine. The taste is indifferent. Totally indifferent. Rice and water. The mouthfeel is fine. So thats good.

bnokk (518) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2015
APPEARANCE super light golden color. Very white head dissipates quickly, but laces glass nicely. NOSE ever so slight hop spiciness (grassy). FLAVOR very light indeed. Refreshing on a hot day, but not a lot of interesting flavor to it. NOTES Good replacement for a macrobrew if you want to support the local economy, or get your friend off MCB.
