Many people don't think this beer is that good, but I don't understand why. It's a great warm-weather or session beer. Light and ambery but not too pale, nice clear color, crisp taste. Nothing too adventurous, but great to have around in the cooler.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to glass.

Appearance: A beautiful copper/amber color with no cloudiness. Great clarity.

Smell: Very malt filled smell with just a hint of hops.

Taste: I really enjoy this one. Your basic Amber Ale. Barely any bitterness at all but not overwhelmingly sweet. A good balance. Very smooth and no flavors that really slap you in the face. This would be a great summer drinking beer and you could drink MANY in one sitting.

Mouthfeel: Very lightly carbonated. Not too much up front sweetness. Malt character shines through in the middle and the finish.

Overall: I really enjoy this beer even though it is considered just OK. An easy drinker. Great session ale. Flavor is very basic so I'll just give it a 4 (although I enjoy basic in many beers).
