look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
A - An interesting orange-ish red hue with a light bubbly head that fizzles within 20 seconds better than some but not as good as most. Looks okay perhaps a bit wattery and over carbonated. Carbonation seems to leave quickly.
S - Some type of Citrus smell (orange, sour cherry or melon?), a small amount of brown sugar or caramel smell. Hard to tell if it is nutty or woody smell, too, but is very vague. Metalic smell?
T-A bit salty, a bit of light brown sugar (or honey) sweet, a bit of sour, a tiny amount of metalic/citrus taste?, a tinge dry but not real hoppy just enough to have a couple more.
M - A bit wattery but definately better than "cheap bear". Can tell that is thicker because of it's sugar content (leaves your mouth a little sticky after drinking)
D - Light enough to drink on a hot summer day ice cold, Warm enough to drink in the winter as a refresher (not a warmer though).
No overwhelming taste or complexity here but okay as a well rounded any occassion beer in my opinion. Can hit home with the "cheap beer" drinkers and passes for those who like more complex beers. Definately an okay beer and I always come back to this one. A great introductory beer to anyone that usually indulges in "cheap beer" to open their horizons on the true world of beer.
