12 oz brown bottle, served in a stein

Pours a brownish amber color, which really isn't all that attractive. The head builds to a thin layer of foam that dissipates quickly. Nothing at all to be excited about in the looks department.

Smell is just beyond uninteresting and into the realm of unpleasent. It's mainly an overcooked corn smell with some strange underlying sweetness. I didn't find it aluring at all.

I didn't let that stop me, though. Unfortunately, the taste followed suit. Except now it was far more of a strange sweetened butter taste, like the stuff they put on kettle corn. Add that to the corn tastes and smells and it's really a rather strange experience...and not one that I like.

Mouthfeel is very average. A bit watery, with some fizz. Nothing great.

The only real reason I would buy this again is because it is consistenty cheap at most of the local grocery stores. But then again, so are beers like Full Sail Amber Ale, or even Stone's Levitation at Trader Joe's, both of which are FAR better choices, in my opinion.

The beer pours a clear dark amber color, large head and tons of lace. The nose is malt, sweet, and buttery, grainy. Start is malt and a bit sweet, the top skinny, the finish, clean and crisp, pertinently hopped, pleasantly acidic. The beer overall is a tad to sweet for my liking, fairly drinkable nonetheless, a “Session” beer maybe.
