A bit light but not a bad tasting beer, I'd drink it again.

This beer tastes like what it is. It's turned into a "craft macro brew". Similar to one of my favorite craft macro beers which they no longer make. American Ale by anahasuer beusch. Except this tastes like a water down version of it. More malty and a bit of caramel malts. Watery flavor, but high carbonation. Not very sweet. A bit dry.

Nothing really special here. It's not a session beer, and it's not a craft. I don't know where it belongs. Perhaps I out grew this ale.
