Poured into my Bruery tulip.
Pours out a deep brown with some ruby mixed in. When held to the light it is almost copper in color. The body is clear but not what I'd call crystal clear. An inch high head forms on the pour and it is white in color. Quickly recedes to almost nothing atop the liquid. No lacing is produced on the walls as this one reduces in the glass.
Mostly malt in the smell that has a slight toast bread smell to it. This really reminds me of a BMC smell. Not very interesting.
Must like the smell, getting bready malt sweetness. There is also this very noticeable metallic taste that I get toward the end of each sip. Aside from that, there ins't much else to this one. Can't say this one is impressing me much.
Very thin and fizzy feeling. Lots of carbonation fizz on the tongue at this one is drank.
This is a pretty easy drink. For me this was a slight step above say the normal BMC line up. No problem finishing this and I wouldn't refuse one if I was handed one but I don't plan on buying this one again.

Pours a clear, golden brown with a fizzy, short lived off white head.
Lightly grassy floral notes muddled with a bready, caramel malt backing.
Medium body, fizzy carbonation.
A decent beer, nothing particularly exciting, but easy drinking, and pleasant.

On-tap at $4 a pint.
Appearance: Brown. Plenty of clarity. Not much head, and virtually zero lacing. Looks alright, I guess.
Smell: Malty. Slightly roasty. No hop aroma, really. Just has a cheap sort of smell, but it's not off-putting or anything like that. Again, alright.
Taste/feel: For a third time, it's okay. It has a thin feel with a moderate prickly carbonation. Caramel malts and the like with a slight roastiness as well. Sweet, not bitter at all... mediocre, and pretty uninteresting.
Short review for a beer that doesn't require a long one. It's a beer that... just... it is what it is. Affordable, decent, nothing-at-all-special beer. Sweet, quite thin, a good amount of carbonation, not very interest piquing. Probably wouldn't buy it again.
