Update to original review. An amber ale with a very malty back bone. I'm not a fan. You see it everywhere here in Florida. I don't see what all the hoopla is about. I wouldn't pick it up again. It seems a bit off balance. Perhaps I'd give it a shot again if it was on draught, and a HH special.

This is quite the popular beer with non beer geeks so I knew not to expect too much. I was not let down. The pour is quite handsome with a nice reddish copper color and a foamy white head that lasts throughout the pour with a little spiderweb of white lacing. The aroma is nearly non existent but what there is is malty and sweet but definitely not deep and complex. The mouthfeel is quite light and easy to sip almost reminiscent of a light lager. The flavor is very unremarkable. A little hop bite and a significant amount of sweet malts. There is a bit if a bready Belgian yeast flavor as well. This is by no means a bad beer and I can understand why people not used to craft beer would enjoy this, but personally I won't be buying this one again.
