Excellent BBQ beer with a great feel. Don't think I would drink it any other time, though.

VERY understated. Almost watery. It would be exceptional with sushi or spicy food, to clear the palate. I don't prefer it for sipping on its own.

Mediocre beer. Pouring it into a glass and letting it sit for a little bit improves on the flavor and smell but not by enough to where I'd call it good stuff. Spend your money elsewhere.

This one didn't do it for me. Flat flavor. Slight sour taste. Stale finish. A little pepper on there tongue

Auburn pour with thin white head. Not much aroma. Semi sweet malt body. Lite mouthfeel. Overall, a lite easy to drink beer.
