A cheap Walmart economy craft style brew.
Decent foamy head. Clings to the glass. Fades quickly. Dark copper color. Light carbonation. Clear. Would've rated it above 4 if not so clear. Definitely filtered and not bottle conditioned. Bummer.
Watery, hoppy, biscuit-like aroma.
Sweet and bitter. Flavor lingers in the mouth. Tart.
Just right. Good body.
Not bad. You get what you pay for. One of my favorite brews at Walmart. Seems somewhat variable from batch to batch.

The pour was a clear light copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) white foamy head that reduced to a thin cap with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was extremely mild of a light grain malt, grassy hops and an earthy yeast with a light note of caramel and maybe an adjunct.
The taste was lightly malty sweet with a faint hint of caramel at first, becoming mildly bitter and a tad hoppy towards the end. The flavor was short lived with just a light bitterness left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery, dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was an ultra light tasting brew in every aspect. It reminds me of the light beers on the market today, but with just a little more flavor...

Pours a clear copper color with a thin taupe head. Aromas of sticky bun, malty molasses, and resinous pine forest floor. Quite sweet with a sour wet leaf, woody/pine bark twang. Too drying and overly fizzy for the style. Bought a 6 six and only drank 3. Gave the other 3 away. Not very good.

Never had this beer before, and I had low expectations. However, I was surprised by this beer. I poured two long necks into a 24 ounce mug, and noticed that there was a decent head. This head quickly went away, but there was more of one than expected. There was a little lacing, which I also was not expecting. The color is a decent amber with a little body to it, and the smell is subtle with hints of hops.
The taste is a nice balance of a generic ale taste, and cascade hops. The taste is a little mellow for an amber ale, and it is very, very drinkable. My friend said he noticed some caramel, but I thought it was a little bitter and malty instead of sweet.
This is a good beer, and it is cheap. It also holds up to many similar amber ale microbrews, but is easy on your wallet.
