Served on tap in a frosted pint glass.

Appearance: Slightly darker amber color with a thin white head.

Smell: Mild hops, sugars and grains.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste was mild hops and grains.

Overall: Decent brew but nothing special. It was good good with my burger I had, easy to drink.

A - The beer is a clear amber. It arrived with no head, showed very little carbonation, and produced no lacing. Nondescript.

S - Mildly malty. Minimal aroma.

T - Not bad. Little bit of light caramel type sweetness and some decent bitterness on the back end.

M - A little astringent, but had decent enough body.

O - Not too shabby. Non-offensive as one might expect, but the flavor really is pretty decent. Wouldn't search it out, but it presents a nice alternative to standard BMC AAL's.

Pours a thin head over a pale amber body. Retains a little frothy ring. Nothing in the way of lace.

Smells sweet and bready. Light grassiness. Overall very weak nose.

The taste is of sweet malt with a little molasses. It gets a little bready with a bit of spice and rye and ends with spice, bread and grass.

The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. It washes down quick and easy as any beverage by this company.

16oz can in a pint glass. I chose this over standard BMC and import offerings at a shore beach bar, reluctantly.
A- Amber? Ok, if you say so. More dirty golden color to me. It did have a big fluffy 2-finger head, off-white. Plenty of lacing. Bubbles.

S- Like any old AAL but with a more noticeable alcohol nose. Lots of damp musty bread.

T- All malt in the form of more wet bread.

M- Some body here. Slippery and fizzy. Some bite, too.

O- I should've gone with Corona.
