Pours a clear light amber with a whispy head that leaves a touch of lace. Aroma is malty, with caramel and bread notes. Flavor begins malty and sweet... caramel, butter, maybe a touch of bread dough... followed by ample bitterness to add balance. Actually one of the more bitter amber ales I've come across. Some light resiny after taste. Body is a little on the heavy side, with medium carbonation. All in all, a pretty decent beer considering the $4.99 price tag.

2.66/5  rDev -17.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: A brown/toffee color. A tan and creamy head. Decent retention and some spotter lacing.

Nose: carmel malt with a hint of dark fruit. A very little bit of tropical fruit, like pineapple at the very end.

Taste: Butterscotch, tobacco, and toffee. Clean malty background.

Notes: It was a good price, but nothing special is happening here. Had this the night I made a time capsule under a drinking fountain....so that's kind of fun.

Dark amber body topped by a thin off white head. Clear and appropriately amber-y. Smells like garbage pile, boiled cabbage, burnt crystal malts, dark fruit. Palate features notes of boiled vegetables, metallic dumpster water and slightly astringent crystal malt. Medium-bodied, metallic finish. Hard to choke down.

Jumping cow pours a dark reddish color with a very small head. There is a rich, and strangely spiced aroma. The taste is the same, a crisp malt backbone, with a strange spicy flavor. Decent body, and strength in flavors. Overall its a very average beer, some unique spiciness.

Dark copper in color with little head to speak of.

Nice caramel malt aroma up front with just a bit of fruity aroma.

Some tobacco and slight toffee notes with a touch of butterscotch. Nice malty character throughout and this is clearly malt forward. The hops are present but aren't showcased. Easy to drink but nothing special.

3.13/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: This is a nice looking beer, similar to perhaps a Red Trolley. Very minimal, tan head with bubbles rising to the top. The color is a soft auburn, leaning closer to brown than red. Very pretty color indeed.

Smell: The smell is fairly strong. It gives off a strong hoppy, herbal note on the nose. It gives off the impression of bitterness, which tickles the palate upon smelling.

Taste: The taste is hoppier than I thought it would be, though the hops were prominent on the nose. The aftertaste lingers on the bitter backend of the palate. Coppery undertones and limited malt. This beer is very one-note and tastes rather grassy in the longterm aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: It is a bit undercarbonated, but I prefer that in a lackluster beer. In this case, the ubdercarbonation helps rather than hinders. It seems to have just the right viscosity for my taste: slippery beneath the bubbles.

Overall: A six-pack of this stuff is six bucks here in California, so I can't complain. I think Head Snapper is better and it is only about fifty cents more. This is fine for a cheap beer, but I'd rather bone up and get something a bit more expensive. Not the best budget beer I've had.
