GSC bottle. Skunky metallic s*** water. Not much else to say about this. Not good.

rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2013
bottle. Amber with small head. Nothing groundbreaking, but a decent amber ale. Light and smooth.

Bottle for this one. Not a classic, but a respectable "amber" that isn’t really an amber.

Fell for it again. I guess marketing works. Why would I think the amber would be different than the others? Pretty bland and pretty blah. Not again.

12 ounce bottle pours a clear golden yellow color, aromas of hay, light husk, some grain, and a touch of earth. flavors follow suit, decent beer overall.

shrubber85 (11402) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle. Light sour barley malt and metallic aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Mildly sweet malt and and hay aroma. Light body. Bland - barely more flavor than the average macro pale lager and most of that is metallic.

2.6
queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle. LIght, slightly sweet barley malt and soapy aroma. Clear copper with a large off-white head. Barley malt and light grassy flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Not great, not bad, would be acceptable for the lawn mower.

Nothing special about this beer, it reminded me of a mass produced light beer with a little malt backbone

3.6

As the name suggests, this pours an amber color with a decent off-white head. The aroma is mostly of grains and malts. The taste is rather malty with some spices as well. Finishes slightly crisp and I actually think this delivers a better spice flavor than their Oktoberfest. Not bad, I heard they were putting this into hibernation so I wanted to try it before I couldn’t find it anymore.

This was a souvenir from my student’s trip to the US ^_^ A nice amber ale that was was dark like an ale but light & crisp like a lager, It is really drinkable & lightly spiced. It would make a nice session beer.
