Saw this one in a couple of places in Vegas, actually sampled in the airport while waiting for our delayed flight. Pours a pretty amber with a light tan head. Slight hoppy aroma with some malt backbone.
Ew, this one isn't good at all. Some light hop bitterness in the front, following by the hint of chalky malt. Extremely light and useless mouthfeel. Not sure if this one was an amber or an O'fest. Either way, not worth the effort.

Las Vegas NV. is not only a desert in the literal sense; but it is also a desolate tract when it comes to craft beers. Sin City was about the best I could get; without traveling miles from the strip.
I tried most of their beers, and they were pretty much all the same; not that they were a poor quality, but they were all blasé .
Decent quality; but nothing special

Half finger head on a golden copper body. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, breads and sweet syrup. Flavor is way too sweet for me with caramel malts, syrup and candy sugar. Light body especially for the style with moderate carbonation. Too sweet, under hopped. Just it very good but also no off putting flavors.

Yearly octoberfest brew. Nice Amber color, spot on if you go by maple syrup color standards. Nice maltiness with a hint of hops and a spice I wasn't quite able to identify. Very good beer.

On tap at Sin City, Las Vegas. Pours amber with white head. Aroma is bready malt, cinnamon and some hops. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of bready malt, caramel, spices and some hops. Finish is medium, semi-dry. Drinkable and not much more brew.

Had this at the Sin City Micro Brew bar at the Miracle Mile shops at Planet Hollywood Hotel/Casino here in Vegas.

Pleasant but somewhat watery looking amber color with a one finger head which stayed for a little while.

Smelled mainly of malts, perhaps a hint of orange peel in there too.

Taste was a bit better than expected considering the somewhat watery appearance. Again, malts were most prominent with a slight citric aftertaste. Mild bitterness.

Not much going on here as far as mouthfeel. I didn't detect much carbonation, and the mouthfeel matched the somewhat thin appearance.

Overall it was an alright beer, although it's not worth going out of your way for. If it's a hot day in Vegas and you've been out shopping with the little lady and you want something cold, then it's worth a stop here to try this or one of their other brews on tap. You can find a lot better than this one, but you can do worse than this too.

On tap at The Pub at the Monte Carlo.

Typical amber appearance, clear and obviously filtered, small head.

Not much aroma at all, just some faint Munich malts it seems.

The flavor is a little better... the malt comes through more and the hops show their face. Not bad.

Easy to drink refreshing amber... an alright beer and worth trying to experience the local beers.
