Appearance - 3/5
Pours a moderately dark orange-amber color. Extremely clear. No head presence. Can see an average amount of carbonation rising up at an average rate.

Smell - 3/5
Sweet maltiness, tastes like an amber ale. Maybe faint traces of breadiness or spiciness. Also a detectable alcohol smell.

Taste - 2.5/5
A deep syrupy malty sweetness, tastes of an amber ale. Not that great of a taste though. The taste is not very strong either, the beer is kinda bland.

Mouthfeel - 2.5/5
The beer is probably medium bodied, but it feels a lot thicker because it has a deep syrupy character to it. I don't really like the feel of this beer in my mouth. It is crisp and the carbonation is light.

Overall - 3/5
I remember having this beer before and liking it, so when I tried it this time, I was surprised at how unimpressive it was. I mean, I knew it was only a mediochre beer at best. But clearly my palate my changed. This beer was not that good. I would never go out and buy a 6-pack of it. I think I might even prefer a Miller/Bud lite over this.

Weighting: Appearance 15%, Smell 15%, Taste 35%, Mouthfeel 15%, Overall 20%
