Lost this review but found again with google cache.

This came as another extra from the great trader KeefB. THis one promises to be much better than the Grain Belt Premium Adjunct Lager.

A: Pours a 1 finger frothy nice lookin head, which takes its time running away. It's pretty clear with a very slight haze and has a bright reddish amber color, rosey hue, and makes me think fruit punch almost.

N: Nice hops. Starts with some nice low alpha but aromatic American hops. The hops have an earthy floral aroma and slight juicy fruit. It then follows up with a light caramel malt aroma. Pretty clean, and has a pretty staple amber type aroma.

T: Starts with more bittering hops, but still light. More earthy style and some oil. It follows with some nice caramel malt and a slightly sweet caramel taste. Some juicy fruity hops layer in after that adding a nice effect. It has a sweet malt flavor that almost adds a ouch of barleywine style fruity sweetness and heavy feel. The magically, it lightens up and the refreshing nature sweeps it off its feet.

M: Semi thin with decent carbonation.

F: Finishes slightly dry and bitters up pretty well. It's also very clean at the end. It pops up to tell you it was there, dazzle your taste buds, and hides away back behind some bush, enough to make you go "hey, where'd that beer go, oh well, it refreshed my palate enough and I think I need some more". Although, the bitterness builds over time and by the middle starts to really get bitter.

Final thoughts: A very nice drinkable amber ale. It has a nice malty amber backbone, adds a touch of sweetness and barelywine style malt/fruity sweetness, and has some nice hop layers. Bitterness and refreshing tastes trade off almost as if they were battling for your mouth's enjoyment, like two gladiators.
