3.39/5 rDev -4.5%
Poured from its silver can, this amber ale offers a nose of caramel malt, toasted malt, and molasses. Its color is orange/copper and the body is completely clear.
This beer has a flavor that leans toward the sweet side, with tastes of caramel, bread, light roast, dough, toffee, and a touch of brown sugar. The hops impart a slightly herbal character, although they are buried behind the taste of the malt.
This seems like a basic amber brew with enough going for it to recommend, but not enough going for it to strike an emotional chord or otherwise stand out in one’s beer drinking memory. I warmed up to it more with repeated sips and I now appreciate this beer for what it is- an everyday amber beer that is non- pretentious and agreeable, even if not exceptional. Some may say it is underwhelming, but it does have enough going for it to recommend.

3.19/5 rDev -10.1%
Light, transparent, orange-amber color lager. Soda-like head on the pour with little retention.
Fresh, malty aroma with hints of citrus fruits and fresh cut grass.
Slightly roasted malt flavor. Almonds and toast. Touch of caramel. Rice and corn adjuncts. Mild herbal hop.
Light body. Descent carbonation. Grainy texture.
Ok, but just doesn't have that much flavor or body. Fairly refreshing, however.

3.34/5 rDev -5.9%
Pours clear copper/orange-amber with a thin white head that becomes wispy. Dotted lacing sticks.
The smell is of light caramel-ish malt/grain with slight roast.
The taste is of light malt with some sweetness, a hint of lightly toasted bread with a hint of hop dryness in the clean finish.
Crisp. Light. Clean. Smooth.
In writing the review, I've noticed a repeating word. The label says that it is medium bodied, I'm thinking light bodied - but, I suppose that it is subjective. Anyway, if this is medium-bodied, it pushes towards the light interpretation of medium. It would have been a better brew if it had more body to it. As it is, it is a basic, easy-drinking amber lager. Decent for what it is.
