This was the first beer I ever truly loved.
It has an average smell really. I much dont care about how a beer smells.
The first taste is bitter but every taste after that is where the true flavor comes in.
It has a smooth mouthfeel.
The appearance is excellent.

Someone left these in my fridge. Contemplated a drain-pour, but what the hell.
A: Fast pour into a glass. Brown/mohogany color. Clear. Decent head and retention.
S: Euro macro beer. Not unpleasant though.
T: Water, caramel malt. Skunky.
M: A little low in the carbonation dept. Pretty unoffensive brew.
O: Before the craft beer wave, this was one of my treasured brews. There's the nostalgia factor going on for me. Otherwise, it's a waste of time.

Poured into a Pint Glass
Appearance - Very Clear Dark Red with a fizzy, soapy head. Interestingly enough, no carbonation.
Smell - Grains, Chocolate, Barley, Malts, and some Light Hops. I'm getting a light sweetness to the scent as well.
Taste - Barley, Grains, Light Hops, and Malts, along with a slight copper flavor.
It tastes like....nothing!!! Aside from some barley and light malts, there's no flavor to speak of. This is is a Brown Ale, not a Light Lager; Brown Ales should have some degree of flavor to it.
Mouthfeel - Yet despite the lack of flavor, the body is quite heavy and thick and with no carbonation. At least it's crisp and feels somewhat refreshing
Overall - There's just no flavor in this, in fact I'd even go as far as to say that Natty Light has more flavor than this. If you want a good brown ale, don't drink this; Look Elsewhere!
