12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops and a salty note, almost like potato chips. The taste is caramel malts, nutty notes and a bitter herbal, citrus hop finish. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Decent. leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2010
An okay amber, malty with some back of the tongue hops. If someone brings a weinhards multi-pack to a party this is the one I’d go for. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2010
Henry Weinhard’s, Blitz-Weinhard Company--Amber Ale--2002 12 oz. Bottle. 5.00% ABV? (3.5 / 5.0) Clear rich bright amber red color. Nice lacy head. Toasted light floral hop front. Thick mild sweet caramel toffee fruit body. Light smoky toasted biscuit spice notes. Sweet mild hop end. No Hops. Sampled 5/19/2003. BroSpud (2262) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2009
I remember these from back in the day. Nothing great but a definite step up from Bud or Miller. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Not bad for what it is, which is pretty much how I feel about every single Weinhard beer. Nothing outstanding about this one though.

Had this beer on 5/8/2000. Aroma is a light crisp hop scent. Color is a rich brown with good carbonation and head. Taste is light crisp and clean. Starting with a light body that goes down easy with a very light crisp feel. Finish is light all the way around with the strongest point being the bitterness. It’s a nice beer to drink but its nothing special. MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle. Didn’t know it was retired, still at the grocery store here. For being so cheap it has a decent malty character, I used to think it was good which is why I tried it again with a more experienced palate. It is overly sweet to me now. It may be too far aged. slimweebs (164) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 7, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2006 Definitely a cheapy, but much better than your run of the mill macrobrews. If I was on a budget this is the beer I would buy. jake65 (4003) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Orange amber color with a small white head. Taste is a blend of malts, caramel, hops, and sugary. The downfall of this beer may be the heavy presence of sweetness. Finish is not as clean as an amber should be. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - APR 3, 2006
we used to pick this one up and the red. were are favorites. back in our heavy bass drink day. this one has a touch of color and some toffee malt sweetness. somewhat extracty.
