12 ounce bottle. With DEC3112 on the neck. Best before dating?

Pours near clear reddish amber, quick to depart khaki head, leaves a trace of a film, and moderate fine lace.

Just a hint of sweet caramel tinged malts and dusty hops on the nose.

Middle of the road amber, "craft beer" for newbies, more caramel, very light hop presence in the finish. Ehh, nothing special, toss some chicken in it for a spell, give it to your BMC drinking friends or family members, create a little more interest for real beer. But dont expect a transcendant experience drinking this one

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle, slightly past the 2013 best by date, served in a lager glass.

Pours clear, deep amber colored, with a moderate size but exceptionally creamy head. The head has good retention and leaves a full coat of lacing on the glass with each tip. Lots of carbonation is visible.

S: caramel with some piney and earthy hops, but with a metallic and faintly musky tone.

T: Better than the aroma, but too mild. Caramel malt up front fades as the earthy hops build towards the mildly hoppy and slightly bitter finish.

M: crisp; light-medium body.

O: Decent, at least after it warms up a bit.

12 oz bottle with a best by date of 123112 pours a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Not much for lacing or retention.

Nose is light and nutty with a touch of caramel. Pretty bland actually with just a smidge of fruitiness.

Taste is watered toasty toffee with a light hop bittering. Very light flavor overall and Id classify this as a JAB: Just Another Beer. This is just something to wet the whistle, so to speak. Mouthfeel is very light and there is carbonation aplenty. It inoffensive, does that make it bad? I’d probably buy it occasionally if it was priced on par with Coors or the like and available in 12packs.
