2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma has some hop and a kind of "twang". Appearance is acceptable (but what does caramel color added mean?). It is overcarbed, thin and dry. The hop bitterness is passable. It is a doable beer for the pricepoint, but "premium" might be a stretch.
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 25.4floz (750ml) can, BBD: 02.18.2017, 1.75 unit cost (mix six), pint glass. Made in the USA of domestic and imported ingredients. Looks like a classic light amber English pale ale. A small head forms on the pour, and quietly rests on top. Even in a glass it smells like a can (tinny, suggesting something gritty) with some caramel mixed in. Mouthfeel is on point, but taste is a watered mixture of grain, mineral, and very light caramel flavors. Not bad, not good, wholly drinkable though.

Large green can (750ml) from a Ralph's Supermarket, brewed in the USA. Drank in the sun on 14th Dec 2017 in Laguna Niguel, California. Poured into a La Chouffe tulip glass three times, clear and clean amber body, short lasting white head. Malty lead in both the nose and flavour, fairly thin bodied and one dimensional but I liked it. ads135 (5215) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 18, 2017
Not the best lager. Dry and stale. Tastes of lightly sweetened cardboard. Tried for the first time in 2007. szampapal (56) - POLAND - SEP 13, 2017
Przyjemny, ale niczym nie wyróżniający się lager. Brak posmaku, złote przejrzyste.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 Light tan head that was short lived. The body is clear with a high amber color. It smells metallic and foulish, like wet laundry. It's not gross, but I don't rush to drink more. There's a near IPA finish on the palette. It's malty and sweet. It's good but not exceptional.

Not terrible. Kinda of tastes like a key stone mixed with corona. Probably wouldn't buy again but not bad.

Michigan seriously needs more English Pale Ales, so I wouldn’t have to subject myself to this. Aroma is cardboard, corn, earthy hops, musty, metallic. Appearance is amber golden, light tan head, clear. Taste is cardboard, musty, corn, metallic, bitter earthy hops, malt, bad. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, bubbly, musty cardboard and earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, as expected, it is not good. gripweed57 (2980) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2017
From old tasting notes. Tasted as "Fosters Special Bitter". Bright Amber orange color. Thick creamy beige head. Fragrant malt nose. Dryish malt flavor hints at pineapple and cantaloupe. Light bitter hop finish. donandres (687) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - APR 13, 2017
