Decent bready aroma and flavor, easy to drink, not offensive, more of a simple session beer than anything.

Drank from a can aboard Northwest Airlines. Presented with a good amber hue and nice head. But it has that airy aroma of a macro. At first I didn't distinguish much flavor, but a tinge of hop bitterness saved it from awfulness. Towards the end of the glass, as it warmed, more of a decent character and flavor shone through, but still an average beer.

Bottle and served in my SN pint glass:

A light amber hue with an initial fizzy head which fades to a small ring and left some lace. The aroma has notes of grain and pale malt with a dash of caramel. Some buttered bread and very mild fruit esters as well. The taste is rather straight forward but enjoyable. You get some acidic fruits and light bitters with that sweet and bready malt base. The finish is rather short but some lingering caramel flavor does stay around. The feel is lively enough and very lightly astrengent. I have had better but also far worse, a quaffable brew all things told.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear red amber with a nice white head. Aroma of malt with some orange and some hops. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel and hops. Middle of the road brew.

Pours clear amber with a soapy beige head. The aroma is another James Page diacetyl-fest ~ at least they’re consistent. There is also some toasted malt and honey like sweetness. Medium / thin body with soft frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with toasted malt and lots of popcorn butter and medicinal malts. The finish is spicy and astringent. I bought three James Page labeled beers - this is the last of the three and also the last James Page beer I will ever have. This is obviously at thumbs way down beer.

decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2007
bottle thanks to alexsdad. A clean golden amber pour. A nose of malt and light paper. A flavor that is sweet malt and a sourish bitter on the finish. A bit over carbonated and a tad thin but a good drinker.

JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 6, 2002
Brown color with a dirty tan colored head. Aroma of light toffee and caramel. Quite smooth and drinkable. Light nutty malt with a touch of dry caramel. Finishes unmemorially. A light vienna in style.

JK (6160) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2005
On tap at the Metrodome. Very light malt aroma. Light red. Flavors of malt and citrus. Heavily carbonated and sour.

Skyview (6056) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Purchased several cases (cans) for our company picnic. Pours a clear carmale amber brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissolves to an almost clean with a fine film . Aroma of roasted multi-grainy caramel malt, some citrus zest and a touch of sour apple. Taste is highly carbonated, medium bodied with multi-grain dough and some light citrus peel flavors. Finish is dry, slightly musty with a faint pecan flavor in the aftertaste.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2006
The aroma’s a bit faint, sweet malt with a bit of graininess to it. Smooth and tasting of sweet caramel, dark toffee, and a light earthy/nutty bitterness, this amber/copper beer is a satisfying if unexciting drink.
