Part of an 8 pack Sampler, this being the other beer that's 'decent' along with Billy Bock.

I know that this is a cheap beer so the expectations are low going in, but the mouth doesn't detect price so long as everyone rating these beers remembers that!

Appearance: It's more of a dirty, hazy copper color than the ambers I'm used to seeing. It pours an ivory head that vanishes into a slick that does remain throughout the entire drink. Lacing is present throughout.

Smell: more sweet brown sugar smell with malty hints.

Taste: Decent, but again, overly sweet and the actually taste that's there is non-inspiring nor lasting long enough to savor no matter how hard I tried.

Mouth: It's medium-light liquid, but also thin for an amber ale. Compared to my Red Ale benchmark, this scores low. Side-by-side, there's just nothing there! For Minhas, its good, compared to most others... not so much.

Drink. Again, because of its low taste and lack of body, this beer is another watery-type beer, it unfortunately doesn't deliver anything the label states, but is the second best beer of the 8 pack sampler and could actually be given to friends and family without complete shame ensuing upon the server.

The first beer out of my Minhas sampler, the "Swiss style Amber", pours a
finger of rapidly collapsing foam over an amber colored brew. The nose
a little funky, with notes of caramel. Carbonation- moderate and steady.
The flavor is mildly toasty malts up front, a bit of grass after. Mouthfeel is
crisp, clean, thin, and a little dry, surprising given the nose. A little of that
grass and some grain in the aftertaste. Not bad, but not really distinctive
either.

Pours out an unimpressive copper color that is quite far from anything red. A loose bubbly head evaporates in seconds leaving an oily surface. It smells like a malt tea, something bland. It tastes bland as well, it says on the bottle "savor the joy, the peace and the neutrality the Swiss have given to mankind" It is certainly a celebration of neutrality. Lightly carbonated, lightly flavored, mildly autumn colored. The saving grace seems to be that this beer is pretty drinkable, besides the fact that is basically tastes like nothing.
