I am very hit and miss with this one when via the bottle and more times than notits a miss. Pours amber with a minimal prickly white head. Smell is diluted but what is there is on the sweet side from the malts. Flavor wise is usually a watered down caramel malt sweetness, just a pinch of hops at the end. When I do get a good bottle, though, I find that like it a lot and it is one of my favorite ambers. Moutfeel is medium bodied with some carbonation. Overall, I stopped buying this one because I was finding I was getting watery batches way too frequently.

Amber color with a thin white head. The nose is composed of mild malts and possibly some English hops. A nice mild ale flavor. Good malty base to it. The medium body is paired with some fizzy carbonation. A drinkable brew. Somewhere between a red, mild and brown ale. Good session beer.

Pours a thick frothy white head. Smells like a macro. Color is more pale than amber. Taste is not bad, not good. Not enough hops for my liking in an amber. Even though the hops are negligible, the malt taste is not dominant either. This is a slight step above a Macro.

Pours out to a nice amber color with very little head. Very lightly carbinated with a slightly sweet malt taste. Very light on hops. Very drinkable, but not very recognizable.
