I enjoyed this. Drank it out of a bottle in the dark, so I can't justifiably comment on the appearance, but it was quite tasty. Tastes of malts and carmel, with some hop bitterness, and some chocolate hints. Mouthfeel smooth, yet creamy. I will definitely seek these out in the future.

One of my favorite beers at my place of work. We have it on draft which definitely creates a better experience. It pours a very pleasant copper/red and has a sweet malty aroma. Its sweet aroma transitions nicely into a semi sweet flavor that makes for a very easy drink.

I remember really relishing in this beer before I discovered craft brews. Not so much now. This one pours a handsome copper red hue with a generous white head and nice lacing. The aroma is malty but unfortunately in the way of a mass produced beer. The flavor is light and sweet and refreshing but yet again carries the taste of the use of inferior grains(I.e. corn). Its a good beer and better than typical lawnmower beers....but not by much.
