Bottle: Pours a transparent orange golden with a cligny-lacing white froth of head. Aroma of lightly sweet and grainy malts with a hint of noble hops and light fruity tartness. Body starts with a faint sweetness and lots of grainy malt notes without much bitterness and a mild watery finish. Drinkable but very bland. Block (3222) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2009
Brown orange pour with a white head. Light aroma of malts and a little caramel. Not as smooth as I expected. Sweet flavor. Pale malts, some caramel, yeast/ bread finish. weitz15 (622) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2009
12 oz. bottle; this brew had an aroma of citrus and hops. The flavor had an extra hint of bitterness just before the finish. Average finish, nothing special about the palate. Nothing special here, but not offensive. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Bottle and served in a standard pint glass: Well it is indeed amber hued with a small fading frothy head, minimal lace. The aroma is just like the "Farmhouse Ale" except the Diacetyl and corn vapours are even stronger. Nutty buttered bread and you get what I mean. Additional, this has a note of lacto sourness as well, it is nearly vile and putrid. Yep, sweet caramel malts wrapped in corn husks and finished off with a chemical plastic flavor enhanced by tart apples and sour milk twang. The mouth feel is lively enough but it is ultra thin bodied. One more till I am done with this beers from this crappy brewery. AVOID this like the plague, the Swiss should sue for character defamation. nuplastikk (6512) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2009
12oz bottle. Amber-tan color. The aroma is sweet and malty, a touch adjuncty/macro, but not as offensive as some of their other offerings. Nutty caramel taste, with a butterscotch smooth finish. The body is light and lacking, very watery and thin. Hyper-minimal hopping, with just a touch of crispness in the initial mouthfeel. Pretty much a shwaggy session beer at best, better left avoided.

Aroma of roasted malt and wet straw.POurs clear amber. Flavour is very malty and very Cheap tasting. not very good. pintbypint (3927) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2008
330ml brown bottle. Amber in colour, poured with a good sized frothy off white head. Nutty caramel malt aroma. Flavour is caramel malts, lemony hop finish. Seems a bit stale and bland overall, and cheaply put together with the malt boardering on plastic. As with the other Canadian raters, Im detecting something a bit off with this beer. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2008
To add to DuffMans comments I envisioned sweaty Italian bakers when I sniffed this one The best thing about the flavour is that it could not be as bad as the aroma and they avoided the strong vanilla notes of many other American Ambers Really just a bad beer beer with a chemical malt flavour DuffMan (10754) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2008
Pours golden brown decent vanilla head. Aroma is truly disgusting...the consensus was sweaty bread. Palate is not quite so evil but certainly not good either. Watery bland caramel bready with a bad sweet chemical note that overpowers the more you sip. Trev thought this may be infected. I recall that the Lazy Mutt had the same gross trait and the bock beer did as well. This is just a bad brewer all around makers of Mountain Crest effluent as well.

Amber to copper in color. Taller cream colored head. Caramel and light toasted grains in the aromas. Hints of whole grain sourdough bread. Somewhat nutty flavors dominate. Some herbal hops and a bitter finish. Linger remains bitter and dry. Pretty much another average at best amber.
