Live review. Poured from the 22 oz. bomber that I bought at Sam's Club in Mentor, Ohio for $2.99 into my Voodoo Brewery pint glass. "ENJOY BY 30MAR14" stamped on the lower right of the label. Also stamped there is 55619 for those interested.
A Translucent very light copper body under a brief but one inch head that was gone after 60 seconds. Fine, safe look. 3.0
S Light biscuit malt and little hops. I am reminded that this beer is entirely drinkable, the best feature of the beer. This smell is somewhat interesting and a rather welcome smell, providing some degree of comfort and ease. It is certainly a better smell than BMC. 3.5
T Barley malt centric light amber taste with a swoosh of hops in the latter one third of the taste. Again, it is apparent why this is not only very drinkable but a very popular beer. Indeed it has been mentioned by many Beer Advocates as one of their early inspirations into craft beer. 4.0
M Thin to moderate, another feature that makes it very drinkable. 3.5
D/O Drinkability is the highest 5.0 Since this category was changed to "overall" then my number rating will reflect that. Overall this is a highly drinkable, easy going light amber. 3.5
Notes: I REALLY like the price of this beer. I noticed that all 3 of the 22 oz. bombers are $2.99 in many stores around here. I will have to try the other two in the New Belgium trio that has come to Ohio and report back here. Fat Tire was the only one available at Sam's Club yesterday.
