3.6/5 rDev +0.3%
Pours a light and clear amber color. A carbonated head appears but quickly recedes to a thin coating. Aroma is a little weak, but I do detect faint hints of toasted malt and hops, as well as some grassiness. Taste is much better than I anticipated - a nice roasty character is strongly in the foreground and it is complimented by a light hop bitterness. It does not dry the palate as hoppier beers may, but I feel it is a little too 'watery.' This is a good 'everyday' beer, but truth be told I'd rather have a good Pilsener.

3.2/5 rDev -10.9%
Ive had this a few times, and only once did I think it was good.
Pour was an amber color with a white head.
Smell has some smoothness, but I pick up earthy, medicinal hops. Somewhat grassy as well. Not my cup of tea.
Taste is much the same, except the medicinal hops dominate. Slight biscuit flavor, but its too crisp for my taste. Not bad, and I prefer it to BMC.

Pours a nice amber color, lingering thin tan head with nice lacing. Sweet aroma, and initial caramel flavor. Ends with a slite bitterness to make it interesting. Mouthfull is a bit watery, but not bad. Overall a decent amber ale and a well rounded beer.
