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.

Had a 20oz. pint at the Blue Tusk in Syracuse for $5. I was hoping this might resemble the decent English pale ale that the old 12 Horse Celebrated Ale had been described as. Really, it was just clean, macro blonde ale with a vague doughy barley character and no hops. I'd call it a step, maybe just a half-step, up from Genesee Cream Ale. But hey, if you're thirsty and feeling thrifty, it's a decent option.

Had 12 horse today for the first time in many years. It was more of a full flavor then i had remembered. Kind of carmel in color and better tasting then many cheap beers and at 8.99 for a case in bottles i thought it was a great value. At 5.1 percent stronger then most cheap beers. it didnt leave a bad after taste at all and have to say the 3 i had this afternoon i really enjoyed. seemed to have quite a bit of carbonation and a fruit type smell.

A-pours a clear golden color with a white head with better than expected retention
T-more sweet malt with a bit of creaminess to it, low hop bitterness
M-light bodied with high carbonation
O-I wouldnt say its the best representation of the style but its very drinkable and decent for the price. Admittedly I have a weakness for genny. If I'm going to drink cheap, it will be some form of genny
