Bought a Discovery Twelve Pack and this was one of the beers in it.

12 ounce bottle with no freshness date.

Pours a clear, amber body with a well-sized, frothy, white head wih average retention

The taste is easy and enjoyable. Almost watery at times, but the predominant flavors are pale malts and light toasty malts with a touch of graininess and caramel.

Average, but sessionable at the local watering hole if you had no other choice.

Small capped bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Light amber color, white head, decent retention, little lacing.
Aroma, just like the flavor, is pleasant, well balanced, but by no means deep or complex. Cookie maltiness, grassy hoppiness, with the malts being more noticeable than the hops.
Light to medium bodied, a decent amber.

Poured into a standard washed drinking glass.

Golden, light brown (not amber)witha one inch foamy white head.

Smells of carmel malts and an ever so slight fruity ester.

Taste is slightly sweet and earthy, some nutty qualities as well.

This is light and drinkable.
