3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I bought it because it’s in a can-bottle. Poured minimal head on a dark brown body.
The aroma has a mild roasted malt with a little crushed grain.
The flavor has a mild sweetness from the roasted malt with a mild bitterness at the finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Well, it tastes like an average porter was mixed with an average amber bock.
A mixed beer? Both must have been pretty weak because this is one of the more forgettable beers I’ve had in awhile. Watery and very mild. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"BIG can...32 oz? Can’t remember. Whatever the size, it was too much. This was a very very basic brown ale. Watery, with only the slightest hints of chocolate, roast, nuts and hops. Blah..." SDalkoholic (2408) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Aluminum can from SqB Liquor: Poured a medium brown liquid and topped with a thick frothy topping of foam head which took several minutes to eventually retreat. Aroma is soapy and smells of cheap ingredients. The drink is naturally sweet with sugary flavors of pure gratified sugar cane. Again, I am confused with this companies attempts of hybrid beer because I have never heard of mixing half porter and half amber. Headbanger (4020) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2013
16oz can 5/12/13 (Binny’s Naperville Clearance Rack)40° in Mug-Pours a dark cola color with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, sweetness, and slight chocolate. Taste of the same with more caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and chocolate. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad at all. Well balanced and goes down easy.

Poured from a bottle. Notes of caramel, toasted malts, floral, sweet malts. The body is thin. I found this to be bland.

Easy drinking light brown ale. Good easy balance. light malt and hops flavor. This was a beer to try and move on. blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Can. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet caramel malt, toffee and fruity sweetness, and herbal hop notes. Not bad. Ratman197 (15208) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2012
32 oz can poured a clear reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness, vanilla and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, berry and light eartrhiness with a smooth berry finish. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: Not so hot. Overly sweet, sorta thin and not very complex. Barely first-time home brew quality. Plus it’s difficult to pour from the oversize can. Not much hop presence to balance all the sweet malt.
TECHNICAL: Very large can. Poured a light, reddish brown with an average, off-white head that fully diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy nutty malt, molasses, caramel, sugar water, candy, non-maple pancake syrup; and very light metallic hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and ever so slightly bitter; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet and slightly bitter with a short duration. There was caramel, pancake syrup, candy, sugar water, molasses, honey, metallic hops, maybe slight herbal hops and nutty malt. It was all sort of artificial. The light to medium body was sort of watery but also syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a sort of metallic finish.
