I used to enjoy this beer, but I opened one today and poured it down the sink. The aroma is completely wrong for an amber ale, and reminds me of a coors lite. If I had any, I would do a comparison. The taste of this beer is also terrible and is reminiscent of a budmillercoors lager and is not anything like an amber ale. There is a faint hint of toasty malt but the aftertaste is more like that of a cheap lager. This beer is also very sweet.

Coors Light was my go to beer before I started working in aLiquor store with such a great craft selection.

Third Shift was very interesting.

Smelled very very similar to PBR and tasted like flat PBR. .

It did have a decent mouth-feel though. Not overly carbonated. Somewhat smooth.

No where near the worst beer Ive ever had. I could easily see my self playing beer p[ong with this beer. Not much else though.I really wouldnt reccomend this to anyone

Although we are doing a tasting on it tonight here at work.

So I guess I will try and sell it.

bought this on a whim,,,( it being cheep),lol. not what i expected given the hype about it. it has a nice color, not much head or laceing. like others here have siad the corn taste overpowers the hops. not one i would buy again but worth trying it all the same. i may have under rated it,, however to my palet it is swill.
