Received a can of this beer as an extra in a trade. Was not expecting much after looking at other reviews on BA. I was pleasantly surprised how drinkable this beer is. The taste is easy on hops with just enough malt to please the palette. The beer is pretty smooth for an amber ale with just the right carbonation to allow you to enjoy gulping down like a good summer brew. I realized that a beer doesn't have to have big bold flavors to be very satisfying.

Pours clear amber from the tall boy can, forms a nice finger high head of stark white. The retention of this is pretty average as is the spotty lacing.

Graham cracker pie crust, bready malts with a touch of cereal grains and caramel sweetness. Light, and breezy hops of pine and yellow citrus. Notes of mineral and metallic bring this down somewhat.

Bready malts with cereal grains and a mineral bite when cold. Caramel sweetness is pretty benign and balancing. Herbaceous hops turn bright and citrusy near the finish. Low bitterness and not much natural cleansing.

Adequate carbonation and a strange body that is watery and nearly too thin over the palate yet sits heavily after the drink. Lacks drying except for some earthy bitterness and a tingle of minerals.

Honestly as a session beer this is not bad, sits a bit flat in the stomach but packs enough balanced amber flavor with some hop zip. Six pack of tall boys was cheap at under $10, a good buy.
