2.88/5 rDev -16.5%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
The color is pale goldish copper with no discernable head. It looks anemic somehow. No, I don't know what I mean by that.
The smell is hops but a very mild version. Honey in there as well. Not bad but not good, really. The taste is decent but somehow a bit too standard American beer-like. Sort of tastes like a macro that's had a makeover. The mouthfeel is spot-on, though. It has nice body, and a great carbonation balance. The drinkability is mixed. The mouthfeel says "yes" but the macro hop aftertaste says "no". Basically, this beer falls into my "good standby at a place with lousy selection" category. Like Shiner Bock, I'll drink it at a party but probably won't buy it for the house. I much prefer their turbo dog.
Serving type: on-tap

Amber pours an Amber color with not much head. The aroma is rather weak, but some pale malts come through. The taste is much of the same, pale malt flavors, no hops, and very weak and light flavor. Carbonation is okay, but overall weak flavors. Overall it's pretty boring and average.
