look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

got my first taste of this with the holiday pack. it had 4 each of Beer, Cream Ale and 12 horse.

poured a nice light gold. about half inch of head that settles a bit. good steady carbonation and light lace down the glass. smells fine but seems light in smell. taste is good. you can catch the hops and it is balanced. this is a rather good refreshing beer that when purchased in the bottle would be one of my favorite everyday beers. all three listed above are very good daily brews.

suckem up and movem out.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: A a pale golden beer with a creamy, off white head that leaves some lacing on the glass.

S: A little bit of an earthy hops aroma with a slight citrusy ester that seems to come from the yeast. There is a moderate malt sweetness

T: A malty softness and a light a earthy hops flavor and medium-light hops bitterness. There is a light bit if ale yeast character but not much. The balance is even and the finish is polity abrupt.

M: A Creamy, medium-lighted beer with a medium level of carbonation.

O: An easy to drink blonde style that is moderately malty beer with a good creaminess. If you buddy only drinks lawn more lagers and needs a gateway ale this isn't a bad choice as it's sort of a lightly flavored ale.

A - Poured a pale yellow with a one inch white head. The head was quite fleeting and quickly dispersed into a thin line on the glass. Very good carbonation level. I did notice some faint lacing.

S - Very "light" aroma for an ale with some hop note as well as some grain. Overall a very neutral smell.

T - Primarily taste is grain with a hint of hop bitterness. No sensation of alcohol. Flavor actually improved as beer warmed.

M - A rather "thin" mouth feel. A bit on the watery side.

O - Considering the price paid, this represents a fairly decent value.

Purchased from Wegmans on Taft Road in Liverpool NY. Honestly not a bad beer for the price. I notice that it is very carbonated which is not a bad thing for the beer. Has mostly a sweet bready taste. It is not to heavy so you can drink a few without getting overwhelmed. I will purchase this in the future it is very cheap an brewed in my home state.

3.51/5  rDev +19.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bought as part of a 12 pack from Beers of the World on 8/2/13.

poured into a nonic, served at fridge temp.

appearance: rich gold, a thick souffle of white head. Nice lacing.

aroma: malt with barely a wisp of earthy hops

mouthfeel: full, well made.

taste: broad malt is followed by a slightly sweet and nutty taste. The sweetness is not a corn syrup sweetness but is more fruity. Just a touch of earthy English style hops kiss the aftertaste.

notes: ok, so this isn't going to pave any new ground but this is a super easy to drink and for the price is a nice little treat.
