Hazy dark copper beer with a fine head of small white bubbles. Nose is watery and metallic. The taste is sharp and malty but watery with a metallic hint. Body is fluid. Generally a watery beer.

In my whole life I have never opened anything other than a single-celled water smoking unit and smelled the aroma of bong water so stronly as my first whiff of this beer. Hazy amber, light tan smallish head. That aroma is too much. I am not sure how they managed this, especially in Utah, but manage it they did. Lightly sweet aroma that develops into... nothing. Watery body, bong water aftertaste. Ugghhh. Even if you like to smoke the ganja I bet you will not like tis one.

12oz bottle poured into a Lager Glass at 42. Color is a deep golden that has a bit of amber. Carbonation is good producing a thin white head. Aroma is a slightly sour malt scent. It has a light body with a crisp light mouth feel. Flavor is light caramel and a touch of hops then a very light bitterness. After taste is clean leaving you with a smooth feel. Overall this is an easy drinking brew.

I paid a whopping $0.50 for this, and might have been robbed a quarter. Coppery amber with a thin head. It looks nice, but that is where it ends. Malt with a distinct metallic odor. Somewhat sweet, malty metal flavor, seems like some sort of spice was added, a bad one at that. Almost could not finish.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Light brown. Disturbing nose. Smells more like pot smoke than any pot smoke ever produced. While I know some people on Ratebeer that would likely automatically give this one a 10 in aroma because of that fact, Im not one of those people. Flavor starts a bit sweet, then the same musty pot flavor comes on. Nasty aftertaste. As most people seem to think this beer has no scent, perhaps I just got a "special" bottle. At any rate, it sucked.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Tap at the Tram Club, Snowbird, UT. Clear amber pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma and flavor are all malt, with just a touch of roasty nuts. Thin bodied. Highly drinkable, but not much going on.

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Features all of the aromatic offerings of a large pencil eraser. Pink rubber is also found in the taste. Thankfully, a bit of sweet malt softened the dry errant-comma-rubbing strangeness.

Poured from can. Copper color with off white head. Toasted malt aroma with light citrus and herbal notes. Flavor starts out toasted and caramel malt followed with some vanilla. Finishes very clean light floral hop. Kind of a creamy vanilla aftertaste. Very smooth and clean beer.

Can poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Moderately hazed amber copper color. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and half a finger of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Toasty caramel. Light mineral with earthy lager yeast. Bready maltiness. Maybe a hint of apple fruitiness. Malty yet refreshing. 3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Toastiness and caramel are the strongest flavors. Mild mineral, earthy, and bready tones. Apple and pear fruitiness. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good richness and velvety texture, especially given the ABV. 3.5 D: Decent beer. Doesnt blow me away, but is easily drinkable. ★ 651 characters DavoleBomb, Feb 16, 2016

Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma is caramel malt. Taste is light caramel malt, crisp, malt finish. Nice taste, but just that. Spotty lacing.
