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.

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.

12 Horse Ale is a clear, sparkling, light golden ale with no head-- just a swirl of small bubbles. It has an aroma of sweet malt and corn. It's medium light bodied with a starchy finish. It tastes sweet and corny. There's a rubbery, sulfurous funk to it that identifies it as a Genny. There seems to be a slight nuttiness to it. It's funky and sweet, but I could have more than one in the ice-cold stubby format.
