1.8/5 rDev -51%
Had this beer on draft at Kite and Key. Pours a turbulent orange with a miniscule head. No lacing. Half-decent biscuity aroma, punctuated with citrus and marzipan. Disturbing flowery taste, with pepper and biscuit malt. Very light mouthfeel and thin finish.

A - Dark rich amber with soft bubbly head and loose lacing.

M - Very carbonated with a musty aftertaste.
D - eh. relatively bland for my tastes and not really what I like in a beer.

Pours a hazy amber to brown in color, with an off white head. In the aroma, a small roast and hint of coffee. In the taste, a hint of coffee and roast, a caramel sweetness, and a bit watery. A small bite and lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry caramle in the aftertaste. Good flavors, just a mild though, hence it being thin.

On-tap at a bar in the Philadelphia airport. Served, despite my protests, in a frosted pint glass.
A: Clear chestnut body with a finger of creamy off-white head. Ok retention, light lace. Not bad.
S: Muted nutty and chocolatey malt. Slightly earthy. Weak, even for the style.
T: Bland, bland, bland. Faint husky malt and fainter earthy hops. Slightly bittersweet finish. So weak.
M: Slick light body with moderate, fine carbonation. Good.
O: This was my first beer in the states after a week in England, and what a poor choice it was. I enjoyed some truly stunning Milds on cask, and there really couldn't be better proof of that serving method's superiority for this style. Served close to freezing into a frosted glass, this beer had less flavor than some glasses of water I've had. If I get a chance to revisit this beer from a bottle, I will.

Pours reddish brown with a touch of haze. There isn’t much head here. The body has a lot of bubbles coming up so at least it is lively.
A touch of sweet fruity notes, some grain, but nothing really is standing out here.
Sweet, lightly hopped, fruity, and yet watery flavors are extremely subtle but still rather tasty. I don’t get refreshing out of this one, but more interesting without being exciting.
A rather light body and easy to drink. Without a doubt a classic pub beer, not a session beer as this is over 4% (you’re welcome Ding).
I only have the one bottle, but I’m not overly excited about it.

12 oz bottle. Pours redish-brown with a foamy off-white head, no carbonation. Aroma is of bready malt with some hints of grassy hops. Light, smooth body. Flavors are light of toasted malt and some brown sugar. A lot of astringency. Finish is short. I could not finish the bottle.

I have been trying to give some local beers a go as of late so I bought a six-pack of this beer. The bottle's label does a decent job describing the color (amber). The aroma was malty with a bread-like aroma. As far as the rest of this beer, not impressed at all. It was very ordinary on the flavor front (malts, some hops, but a dry finish that was a bit stale). As far as the 4.2 abv goes, yes it is easy to drink these all night but why?? Without any real flavor or warming feeling in the palate, you might as well not waste the calories on this and get some other domestic beer that actually has a memorable flavor and is easy to drink (such as Long Trail, Flying Fish, Dogfish Head, etc.) Skip this one...not worth the money.

A: Looks like watered down iced tea. A thin off white colored head tops it off. Half a finger that is gone quickly. Not much lace.
S: Some caramel and lightly roasted maltiness. Also a weird spice/metallic/sour aroma too.
T: The taste starts off with a light caramel flavor and goes down hill from there. Like the nose revealed. There's a metallic sourness thats not very pleasant.
M: Not much mouth presence. Watery and slightly over carbonated.
Overall: Not a very memorable brew from Yard's. I got this in a variety case and it was a struggle to finish 6 of these.
