Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish. crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2011
This is a pretty generic ass beer. Some light malt flavors, no hops. It really lacks any character whatsoever. DocLock (10728) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle from State Line. Pours dark straw at bottom to medium copper on top into my Stone Levitation tulip glass. The head is off-white and small, going away quickly and staying away. Nose is vienna malt, brown sugar, heavy butyric acid. Tastes somewhat sweet, with notes of vienna malt, nuts, brown sugar, an overall sweetness, and a light palate in density and heft. Not a drain pour, but not great. BVery (10609) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from the Minhas brewery gift shop in Monroe, WI. Pour doesn’t look all that amber, more of a pale gold. Very minimal white head. Nose is a little carmel funk. Fairly light and watery palate. Taste is caramel malt, grain, and maybe just a tick of metallic character. Not very good.

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.

Bottled. Poured clear lighter amber with a short cap of whitish head.. looked OK. The aroma picked up semi-sweet honey and vegetal notes with accents of green apple and light grassy hoppage. The flavor found sweet honey and partially-composted veggies at the core.. residual sugars and sharp carbonation on the edges.. finished with not-all-that pleasant sugars. Lighter-bodied and well carbonated on the palate.. sharp at some times and tacky at others.. not a good beer. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2009
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. wlajwl (6884) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Aroma is artificial sweetness and a medium off-note. The flavor is borderline cloying and has an odd twang. As I finished the glass it got easier to drink but still not very good. Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle. Yep .. it’s amber all right. Fizzy. Super malty. Bit of a fruity flourish, but moderate and middle of the road all the way. Clean and made without imperfection, but neither outstanding in any way. (#5164, 7/6/2013) Patrickctenchi (6628) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Pours cloudy tea-amber with a skim of off-white foam.
Aroma of flat cola, caramel.
Taste is bready, caramel...
Flat and lifeless...on the plus side, I’m no longer capable of being let down by these guys.
