A: Nice amber color. Thin amount of head that didn't stick around long. Left patches of lace here and there

S: Couldn't really get much from it. Hints of sweetness but couldn't tell it was very weak.

T: Again, very weak. Thinking I picked up an old bottle or something. Some toasted malt and very light sweetness but having a hard time deciphering. Tastes like a watered down light lager.

M: Carbonation was so-so, again not much flavor jumping out here. Stronger alcohol taste with the mouthful but flavors just aren't popping out at me. Really not sure why. Think I def. had an old bottle.

O: Not very impressed. Pretty disappointed. Couldn't find a "Best by..." date but im guessing its an old bottle. Otherwise its just a very plain beer. Would consider trying one more time to put speculation to rest.

- usda organic. bottled 11/11/11. consumed 10/18/12.

A: A monstrous mushrooming head builds in the vessel to a four finger statue. The coloring is a cranberry juice with a strong sense of carbonation. The head was long lasting, the lacing not so much.

S: The nose yielded stale bread, grains, cola and some amber malt. Lackluster and unappealing.

T: Flavor of watery caramel and watered down cola. Sweet, with an extract like twang. Nothing really else to report here.

M: The mouthful was seltzer like, strong and fizzy, foamy texture, light bodied turning a bit washy soon after.

O: Not sure if age was a factor here, carbonation was as strong as ever which hints otherwise. Sweet, with an extract like twang, boring nose and flavor wise can't see this getting much better. pass.

I picked this up as a M&M 6pack from Binny’s in Downer’s Grove, IL in summer 2012.

Pours a clear, medium brown/amber color with a perfect off-white head. Some slight scents of wheat and malts, but nothing overpowering in the smell. Taste is quite mellow and very light. You get some hints of raw wheat but that it is. The actual taste is fine, there just need to be more flavor behind it. Overall a weak beer that needs work, but I guess it’s all about marketing it as a USDA organic in the end.

Best Before: 02/26/13

Pours a clear, red garnet with with a creamy, foamy white head with nice lacing.

Some caramel, biscuit malts. Faint floral hops. Fairly subdued in both aroma and taste.

Medium body, with mild carbonation.

A decent beer, the flavor profile was pleasant, but seemed a bit subdued.

12 oz.

Pours a clear honey amber color, white suds for a lacing.

Smells like buttered bread and light brown sugar.

Slightly woody bready malt flavors with a mild citrus tartness.

Medium body with mildly prickly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

An average but sessionable ale. Could be better, not very wheaty and the tartness doesn't fit with the rest of the beer. Would probably pair with food okay. Glad I tried it but it's pedestrian.
