12oz green bottle, best by June 17, 2012. Served at around 45F.

Pours clear amber with a one finger off white head that leaves some lacing and recedes to a small cap.

Aroma is some fruity malt, grainy, bready, some caramel, a bit metallic. Good strength.

Flavor is similar, starts with sweet fruity malt, caramel, some bread and grains, finishes quite sweet, minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light bodied, good carbonation.

OK beer. For me it comes across as part light Amber Ale and part Adjunct Lager. For $9 a six-pack...there are better options.

Pours a medium hued amber with a nice white head. Aroma and Taste is grains, some grassy notes finishes with some lightly toasted caramel malts end a bit of nutty flavor and bit of funkiness, some light bitterness. A nice light to medium body and crisp mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Overall a bit light for an amber style ale, not the worst but there are plenty better brews.

Tasted On: 01-26-2012
Freshness: Best by 08-01-2012
Packaging: 330 ml brown bottle
Glassware: Cervoise glass
Purchased: Single from Publix, Huntsville

A: Bright copper color and clear, with a fair amount of bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass. The off-white head is a couple fingers high, with good retention and very good lacing.

S: Bready malts and some light fruit smells, but overall not much aroma.

T: Malt-forward, this beer is moderately sweet with little or no bitterness. Clean and lager-like, with a caramel flavor.

M: Crisp with moderate level of carbonation. Easy drinking, with a lightly sweet aftertaste.

O: An OK beer, but not one I'd seek out again.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- A clear amber color, with a three finger with head.

S- Light, toasted malts, floral hops, touch of fruit. Definitely underwhelming.

T- Weaker version of the nose, slight caramel malts, light toasted malts, almost no really hop flavor, bland is the easy why to describe the taste.

M- Light, watery.

O- A very underwhelming beer, not much different than American Amber/Red Lagers I have had. Definitely will keep passing by this.
