Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: The body is a perfectly clear copper color with a quickly receding white head. No lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma: Toasted grains and faint caramel cover up a slightly sour body.

Taste: Not a whole lot to this other than some caramel and malts. There is a metallic flavor roaming about as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: I liked this less and less as I continued to drink it. It had hints of being an amber lager.

Pours a yellowish amber, white frothy head with quick dissipation, nose grainy, taste bland with hints of sweet corn nastiness. Not as repulsive as Bud Lite, but honestly I'll take the blandness of Bud over this one's attempts at character.

Serving Type: Bottle at fridge temp, "born on" 9/8/14.

Look: deep amber, light brown and entirely clear. Moderate pour produces fizzy head that settles down to absolutely nothing, but this isn't really a fault given the style.

aroma: Faint caramel and roasted malts

Taste: almost non-existent, but the alcohol makes it self known at the back of the tongue. Some faint grain and alcohol lingering in the aftertaste.

Feel: low-medium thickness, with a mostly wet finish. Bubbly carbonation.

Overall: This is a noticeable step above standard bud and other AAL's in flavor with a nice boost in abv to go with it. I wouldn't turn down this beer if someone offered it to me, but would not buy it myself. The worst fault is the lack of flavor to mask the somewhat high abv making it a little unpleasant to drink, but other than that it's pretty smooth which is what they are going for.
