Another can courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty deep amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some light hops. Taste is also on the mild side, some hops, light malts, easy drinking but kind of a bit on the bland side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Serving type: can

Smell- the smell was a bit of a turn off. Had a bitter smell to it.

Looks- Cloudy, Amber

Taste- Crisp, very pleasant to the mouth. Rich to feel.

Overall - Not the most attractive lady in the bar, but don't judge a beer by it's bottle. This is a great every day beer. year round I could sit down and knock back a few pints of this. MUST TRY!!!

Serving type: on-tap

I had this on tap at the White rose -served chilled in a pils glass.

The color is murky ruddy brown with a thick cream cap w/ ultrafine bead and light lace clings. The beer has an ulfiltered look that gives translucent clarity. The smell of the amber is lightly fruit with a slight diacetyl note with mild toasted malt odor. A mildly creamy body, slightly yeasty feel and fruity with a gentle malt element with medium body and semi-sweet finish.

The taste is above average with an appropriate amount of caramel and bready sweetness and mild toasted notes. There is a slight fruity tanginess from the yeast with slick buttery accent however it finishes semi-dry with low bitterness. This has a bit of sweetness but doesn't fall into the full malt or higher than average hopping type amber categories which brings it down overall for me. the taste could have a cleaner yeast which also makes it lackluster for me. It could use some refining in general, but I prefer a drier amber overall.

Serving type: on-tap
