2.93/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Appeared to be dark cherry red, however it was very dark and hard to tell really. Medium-sized white head sat on top and took a whiile to dissolve.

Smell: Sweet malts and not much else.

Taste: Overly sweet and syrupy. Little or no hop presence. Tasted of maple syrup, cherries, red apples, and cake. The most "girly" amber I've ever had.

Mouthfeel: Again, syrupy. Aftertaste is mild with a sweet malty taste.

Drinkability: This beer was brewed for the Cal Poly students who want a step up from the Keystone/Natty Light that they're used to. Smooth, sugary, and cheap ($4 for a pitcher on Tuesdays!) may appeal to most, but not this BA.

EDIT (11-01-2009): After tasting this on several other occasions, I must say that it's really not that bad. The recipe seems to have changed greatly since the first time I had it, and the beer now tastes more like an average amber than a sugary mess. Scores have been adjusted.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at SLO Brewing Company in San Luis Obispo, CA.

Pours a clear orange-red with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and some slightly nutty aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable but pretty basic.
