2.8/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Brown bottle with an evil looking, winged monkey. No freshness date but a not so reassuring "Always Fresh" is printed on the label.

A - Incredibly clear and light amber. A big, white head that dies very quickly but leaves behind a great trail of foam as it descends along the sides of the glass.

S - A delicate aroma of sweet malt and not much else.

T & M - Light bodied with a little carbonation tickle. Rather thin really. The taste is somewhat sweet with a hint of caramel but no complexity at all.

D - This beer looks good, but in all other aspects is rather average if not disappointing. Not something I will buy again.

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

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of caramel malt, hint of hop, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight pale malt, slight hop, and a hint of roasted malt. Overall, average appearance, aroma, and body.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a light brown-amber color. A light cream colored head dissipates to a fine film with good sticky lacing. The beer smells bready and of malts. The beer tastes bready, doughy, and malty. It's a very mild taste and very drinkable. There's a slightly hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied, very drinkable.

Overall, not the best amber ale around, but a sentimental home-state favorite. Very easy drinking.

2.68/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Clear filtered golden body a touch close to amber. Not very much head, but decent retention with the little available.

Crisp aroma, very grainy malt & sweet caramel.

Not much here. A light sweet grainy malt character, just a touch of hops and by touch i mean it, not much more than your standard BMC.

It is nice and refreshing. I know my scores won't really reflect it, but I don't dislike this beer. If you're in the mood for something light and refreshing, but want something with a touch of good grainy sweetness this beer can really hit the spot.
