I usually drink this one on tap when alternatives are limited. My overall impression is of a mediocre beer, really no distinguishing characteristic. The color is deceptively dark, more brown than amber, giving way to an overly light body without much hop character. It’s drinkable but could be smoother, and it heads well.
Clear, amber colored, medium frothy off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, some herbal notes. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel and caramel coloring, syrupy, medium- bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily.

Thanks Ivan! Dark amber body with a clear off white head. Well, it was time for me to try this, well, erm, classic? Intensive fruity, malty, caramelly aroma. Strange really, almost making one think of yeast going wild with esters. Sweet, flat taste, bubblegum and caramel, banana, candyish. Tastes like banana candy really in a way. Yeah, very much revolutionary compared to, say, Bud, but still far from a great beer. nohopspleez (77) - Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2017
surprisingly good beer from AB
actually had some flavor, a rare thing indeed.
but, they use rice and GMO, not actual ingredients..... strike 3. Psu319 (17) - - SEP 15, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Looks great in a glass as it has a great color. But that's where it ends, not malty and has a neutral smell. Makes me thing they use food coloring not malt to color it. jabgq101 (1) - Englewood, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2017 does not count
Its a good, cheap dark beer. Definitely not a ton of flavor, but it is what it is for the price.

Overall a good beer. However this beer may not be for everyone-- beer is refreshing, light bodied, not dry at all, and leaves a clean aftertaste. Beer smells faintly like roasted nuts, and looks good in a glass.
This beer is certainly unique-- a light feeling dark beer, so dark beer purists may not enjoy this, but then again maybe it is the perfect dark beer for a niche group-- a light refreshing dark beer that can be drank anytime, anywhere. slyde (11) - Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2017
This has become my favorite amber beer, although I do sometimes switch to Dos Equis Amber for a change of taste. jcraik (1) - - AUG 1, 2017 does not count
Nice colour, mild flavour, easy on the palate with no after taste. I would drink this beer again.

Leftover bottle that a guest brought to our party, so I figured I'd try it. Free beer! Unfortunately, with this beer, you get what you pay for it. Pretty aqueous palate with a slight hint of acorns, but it's very watered down. Kinda like flavored water. Below average.

Good smooth beer, enjoy it in the fall and winter. Really enjoy it on tap any time of year.
