Poured from bottle to chilled glass.
Appearance - Pours nicely from the bottle, though this beer isn't as 'ambery' as I expected. It is more of a light brown to golden colored beer. One and a half finger head after pouring, soon after there is just a thin white head. Nice lacing around the glass.
Smell - Like some of the other reviewers, all I really pick up is malt. Maybe some light caramel hints but it is negligible.
Taste - Tastes just like it smells. Malty. This beer reminds me of Oak Creek Amber but more carbonated. The carbonation lightly pricks the tongue and goes down pretty smoothly. Slightly dry finish with a caramel and malt flavor that lingers on the whole palate. There isn't a whole lot going on here other than malt and caramel, its kind of sweet on the finish. Its not as watery as I thought it was going to be but it is a very drinkable amber lager.
Mouth - Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Slight bitter finish and dry. Not much going on with the mouthfeel.
Overall - I'll drink this one, but I'd likely skip over it next time. It isn't a bad beer, but theres nothing that really makes me want more and more. If you like malty beers than you might pick this one up.

Appearance is really great. Huge off white head clear amber color and really dense lacing.
Still had some head at the bottom of my nonic glass. Smell is bready malt with a bit of caramel malt. No hop smell.
Taste is sweet malts with enough herbal hops to balance the taste.
Mouthfeel is medium with enough carbonation. Finish is slightly dry with a balanced finish.
Overall I did not care for the bottled version but this review comes from a 16 ounce can brewed in Ft. Worth (Miller) and it is much better than the bottled version. I hate to say this as a long time union member but the boys in Ft. Worth are brewing some excellent beers. Check out the Fosters Oil cans from the same brewery. Best Fosters ever. The can date Jun 16 2014. Has to be the brewed on date cause this beer was really tasty.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. smell is very mild, some light malts. Taste is also mild, malty, a bit of grains, refreshing but bland. Feels light in the mouth and overall not terrible, but nothing special about this beer.
