One of my first non-BMC beers. I'll always have a soft spot for this one. It's not an amazing beer for my tastes but a great example of the style. Nice clear amber color with a malty finish, but not cloying. A solid choice at many bars that don't carry much in the way of craft beer.

A - Pours a deep amber with a thin white head.

S - Mostly sweet malts and some breadiness.

T- Just like the smell. Sweet maltiness with a light mild hoppy bitterness.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Very easy drinking.

O - Affordable and available everywhere. A nice beer for the fall months.
