"The only one of the 3 boars that had a decent malt profile, but there was really nothing else at all going on with this beer. Not offensive, but kind of a waste of time..."

Pretty easy to find, as the local Grocery Outlet seems to get cases of this stuff every so often. The aroma is sweet caramel malts, as is the flavor. Nothing off or horrible, just simple which seems to nature of the beers I’ve had today...simple. Easy to drink. BREWMUSKCLES (2731) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 nice amber with earthy tones and a mild fruity hop character (without the bite). guess i got lucky finding one. i too have had it back when it won an award at the american beer festival, and had it printed on the bottle. tight amber bubbles that finish off quickly. BIG CARAMEL TASTE. AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 30, 2005
I didn’t care much for this beer. It was pretty bland in most aspects. Flavor was a bit tart and I’m not really sure from which ingredient that came from. DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 7, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Wine Time in La Jolla, CA) I last tried this beer back in July of 1995, and actually rated it a good deal above average. According to my notes, both the flavor and nose were fairly malty, it was lightly bitter, and the flavor faded fast in a short-lived finish. So here we are. I found this beer on the 99 cents singles shelf in the cooler. I know it’s been sitting there forever, probably years, since it says it was brewed and bottled in Dubuque, Iowa. But what the hell, if it’s bad, it was only 99 cents. But it seems to have held up quite well. Everything I wrote about the beer back then still applies. It’s quite malty, lightly bitter, and the finish is a bit weak. It’s fruity and mildly sweet, but not sugary. It has developed an interesting earthiness in the overall flavor, and a smoky character in the finish. The aroma is also very earthy and malty. It’s light amber in color, and perhaps just slightly hazy in appearance. The off-white head is very small after the pour, and soon fades to only the smallest of rims around the edge of the glass, and so lacing isn’t possible. Considering this must have been sitting around for ages, this isn’t bad at all. A bit thin, but I like the earthy, malty flavor.

Bought in the 12 oz browm long neck..simple red label.
Pale crystal clear brown in colour..not much carbonation visible, small slighly off-white head.
Aroma is weak but mostly of malts.
The taste is very weak and almost totally sweet malt..theres no sign of hops till the end.
this is a quite watery beer on the palate..but at least the carbonation is OK.
A very average beer indeed..yet its drinkable enough..though very forgettable. GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - FEB 21, 2004
A bit weak. The amber has a nice malt flavor, but just not enough. There is also a metallic flavor present. I bought this at a canned food outlet so I'm not sure of the quality. jazz88 (2683) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 1, 2003
Bottle. How does a bottle like this end up in a corner store in the Mission of San Francisco. My bottle said it was brewed by Georgia Brewing Co. in Dubuque, IA. I've gathered that this was contracted from Wild Boar (aka Georgia Brewing) in Atlanta. It must have been there for years. A hazy caramel amber color wit ha diminished light brown head. A strong dark fruit aroma that was quite nice and led to a robust flavor. A quality beer.
