look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Caramel-orange in color with a small and short lived beige head. Clear dull caramel. Looks pretty boring really.

S - Faint wispy caramel and brown sugar. This is EXTREMELY mild (how's that for an oxymoron?) and wimpy, but in no way unpleasant or offensive. Bland.

T - Sweet brown sugar, toffee, and a hint of caramelized sugar too. This is a generally sweet malty beer that isn't hitting any high notes, but isn't singing out of tune either.

M - Mellow, moderately carbonated, and really sugary with a super sweet finish.

D - This is refreshing and easy going in the same vein as Negro Modelo or Newcastle, and like those beers its borderline watery and underflavored. Honestly, this is a good budget beer that is way ahead of "cheap fizzy-yellow" brews, but is still pretty damn cheap. I picked up a sixxer of this for a little over five bucks at the gas station to enjoy with a nice cigar. Since full bodied cigars usually eat even Imperial stouts alive, I usually follow each puff with a swig of cheapo beer... or really expensive scotch. Go figure.
